The National Weather Service has issued a “hazardous weather” notice for several counties in Southeast Tennessee including Marion County.

Steve Lamb, Marion County EMA Director, says concern should be reserved for those traveling north. “Most of the concern is for the mountains of northeast Tennessee. All they are calling for around here is rain with maybe a little snow mixed in the morning. We don’t anticipate a lot of problems locally based on temperatures,” Lamb said.
