MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) -- A significant winter storm continues in northeast Tennessee and the Smokies as the remnants of Superstorm Sandy bring strong winds and snow into the region.
The National Weather Service predicts continuing snow showers over the higher elevations through Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations of 6 to 24 inches are possible, mainly above 2,500 feet. Localized areas above 5,000 feet could accumulate as much as 35 inches.
Some valley locations could also receive light snowfall as well, but accumulations of only an inch or less are expected in most areas below 2,000 feet.
The weight of the snow could bring down some trees and limbs, causing power outages. The roads are expected to be slick and hazardous.
