Dusting of snow likely across region

A wintry mix is expected to shower the Tennessee Valley for about 12 hours tonight, but local forecasters say it shouldn't amount to much.

The valley likely will see less than an inch, but 1 to 2 inches is possible in higher elevations of Tennessee, North Georgia and Alabama, said WRCB-TV Channel 3 chief meteorologist Paul Barys.

Light snow likely will start falling around 5 p.m. today and let up around 5 a.m. Thursday, Barys said.

"You may see some accumulation on grassy areas and parked cars, but we probably won't see more than that in Chattanooga," he said. "We could see some schools close in more mountainous regions, though."

Barys warned of slick spots on mountainous roads as the snow melts and refreezes.

Thursday's temperatures are expected to linger in the low 40s, with skies clearing up and temperatures rising into the weekend. Barys said temperatures on Friday and Saturday could settle in the upper 50s.
