Tonight, mostly clear and really COLD...mid to upper 20s !
The LAST TIME Knoxville was in the 20s in the morning was March 7th, 8 months ago !
Normal Low for this time of year: 41°
The RECORD LOW is 24° from 1995...it's SAFE. No broken record expected at McGhee Tyson Airport.
Saturday, mostly sunny, lower to mid-50s (Go Vols! See my UPDATED Kentucky forecast for the evening game on a previous BLOG post below.)
Sunday, more sunshine, around 60°
Meanwhile...let me paint you a picture.
Close your eyes. Imagine the future. It's RAINING outside. Even steady at times. No big deal. But a little bit later, you look, and it's now RAINING & SNOWING at the same time (Oh my!), with some icy pellets (sleet) mixed in as well. Funny thing, you notice, if you live in Knoxville & the Valley, nothing is sticking to the pavement. But then, before you know it, it all changes over to SNOW...for like 5 minutes or so. Then, done.
From this distance, 3.5 to 4 days away, here's my recap,
0.25" of RAIN,
followed by 0.10" of BOTH RAIN & SNOW falling at the SAME time
followed by 0.02" of FLURRIES (pesky flakes)
The End. Any questions?
This represents Monday night, November 11th and the morning of Tuesday, November 12th in the eyes of Captain Accurate.
BOTTOM LINE? This data will change again and again and again and again until the event.
So, stay tuned. From this distance, this is a small event for most and a minor accumulation event for the Smokies, Plateau and parts of Kentucky
So weather does not surprise you
