LAFOLLETTE, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE) – Chilly breezes and sunshine along with a high of 44 highlight our Monday as the warming trend begins. Monday night will be the last night when the low dips below freezing until next week.

A warming trend begins today and will last through the week as we shift to a warm and active weather pattern. Widespread rain chances return Tuesday night into Wednesday, possibly continuing into next weekend.

A warming trend will lead to snowmelt across the area early in the week, which will saturate the ground in many places. Then, late Tuesday through the rest of the week, several rounds of showers and possibly thunderstorms will move through the area. This will bring widespread, locally heavy rainfall that could cause flooding of rivers and streams. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/22/2024-6AM)
