More snow will fell across the Channel 3 area last night. The snow that fell earlier has changed over to a rain/snow/sleet mix. This has led to some melting of the snowfall. The change over back to snow started around sundown.
We will see a good chance for 3-5" of snow in the metro area. with 6-10" in the Blue Ridge mountains of our area. West of the Sequatchie river valley we should see 2-4" depending on elevation. As a matter of fact most of the higher amounts will be in the higher elevations where it will cool sooner. The snow should end sometime near midnight or after. Roads could become slick in some spots but temperatures will only be dropping into the upper 20's to near 30.
