Light snow is still expected across parts of the southeast on Sunday as a potent clipper dives into the area. Surface temperatures will be marginal, which will act to limit accumulations and possibly allow for a light rain/snow mixture across far northern parts of Alabama and Georgia. Another factor that will limit snowfall amounts is moisture. This system will create adequate lift, which will act to ‘squeeze’ out the available moisture, but moisture will be meager at the surface per the modeled soundings.
With that said, this system is potent (some instability will come into play), and light snow is possible across much of central and eastern Tennessee, far northern Alabama, northern Georgia, and western North Carolina. The snow will begin in Tennessee early Sunday morning and traverse towards the east-southeast throughout the day on Sunday, and continue into Monday morning for the mountains of North Carolina. Light accumulations are possible across the area; with higher elevations picking up a few inches.
