Snow could be on its way early next week. 

The National Weather Service is calling for a chance of snow showers before 8 a.m. on Monday, then a chance of rain and snow showers between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

It could also snow later Monday night, as well as through Tuesday, the agency predicted. 

"It looks like the heaviest will be Monday night and early Tuesday,"  WRCB-TV Chief Meteorologist Paul Barys said. "And there could be up to an inch of accumulation in the more elevated areas."

Sam Roberts, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's bureau in Morristown, Tenn., agreed temperatures for the rest of this week should be average. But, he added lows could dip into the teens Wednesday night.

"That's a pretty big drop-off compared to the last few days," he said. "It'll be back to the old routine of bringing pets in and leaving the water running."

And it means the early spring predicted by the groundhog will have to wait a little while longer.
