Spring can't seem to stay sprung around these parts for very long this year, and we'll have another strong cold front cross this region on Sunday. Ahead of and along the front will be pockets of heavy rain and thunderstorms that may reach severe levels for damaging winds. If they approach moving relatively west to east, the Great Smokies will absorb a good bit of the energy for cells heading for ACA. If the move SW to NE, we won't be quite as protected...in any event, heads up for possible trees down or a power outage (they never really last long, overall, when they occur).
Then, in the predawn hours Monday, snow is being talked about behind the front. At this moment, both of my models are going 0-1" for ACA, with 2" along the immediate TN border above 3500'. I don't see anything for the valleys, so I imagine the NWS may put out another HWO (hazardous weather outlook) for the snow on Sunday, for elevations above 3500'.
When I return Sunday night, I'll update if the above information is significantly different.
