"My FINAL Forecast for this event" means I won't be changing this forecast in the morning.
COLD AIR, second
I am still expecting 0.50" to 1.00" + of RAIN to fall first, starting this evening. But as we DROP through the 40s and into the 30s, a changeover will occur with SNOW sticking, mainly in the Plateau and in the Smokies, with stronger winds in the higher elevations. Some sleet (ice pellets) may be mixed in as well, as part of the transition. Just a heads up. Elevations above 5,000 feet (Mount LeConte, Clingmans Dome, Newfound Gap, for example) can expect 4 to 8" of snow with isolated 12" + amounts.
