WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Riverview and South Central Kingsport

If you live in Riverview and South Central Kingsport, get your stuff done early and prepare to hunker down again this weekend, JANUARY 29th, 30TH and 31ST. This advisory is for your Friday, Saturday and Sunday planning purposes from the National Weather Service, Morristown:

"Confidence is high that the depth of cold air will be sufficient for the precipitation to be ALL SNOW across Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and the Tennessee mountains. Snow amounts of 6 to 10 inches will be possible, perhaps more in the higher elevations."

"A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon for Sullivan, Hawkins, Washington and Greene Counties in Tennessee; and Scott, Washington and Wise Counties in Virginia."

Forecasts for Riverview and South Central Kingsport are:

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a high of 47, and a low of 25 Friday morning.
Friday: SNOW on Friday with a high of 35 and a low of 27 Saturday morning.
Saturday: SNOW on Saturday with a high of 30 and a low of 12 Sunday morning.
Sunday: Partly cloudy with a high of 32, and a low of 14 Monday morning.

Realistically, I think Riverview might get 4 to 6 inches of snow, as of Thursday's weather-model observations. Please watch this page for revisions leading into Friday, but right now, this storm looks to be as threatening as the other one that hit the neighborhood back in December.
