A light mix of rain and snow is expected in Chattanooga tonight as temperatures dip into the mid 30s, but no accumulation is expected, according to the National Weather Service.
"You might have some light snowfall, but I think it would primarily melt," said Terry Getz, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Morristown, Tenn. "After daybreak tomorrow, the temperature does warm, and I think we will see it changing over to more of a cold rain during the day."
The National Weather Service was calling for a 50 percent chance of precipitation this evening, Mr. Getz said. By tomorrow morning, the likelihood was expected to rise to 90 to 100 percent.
Motorists are encouraged to drive carefully over bridges and overpasses, where surface temperatures are colder and sleet or ice is more likely to accumulate, Mr. Getz said.
