JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Road Superintendent Ron Dilbeck and crews were out early on this Monday morning taking care of some downed trees and debris resulting from Sunday night and Monday morning’s heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts. Their duties will change through the day and night on this Monday as the weather transitions to winter-like.
Dilbeck told WLAF radio during a live on-air interview just before 7 am that his team is getting prepared for what may happen later this afternoon and tonight. “I expect us to get snow sooner in the higher elevations than we will here in Jacksboro, Caryville and La Follette. All employees will be at the highway department today working on the plows and getting everything ready as we prepare for the worst and hope for the best,” said Dilbeck. Road crews will likely be out all night and into Tuesday monitoring and clearing roads.
Campbell County is under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY from 4 pm Monday through 7 am Tuesday. Light snow accumulations are expected with totals ranging from one to three inches at elevations of 2,000 feet and above. Temperatures fall through the 30s on Monday down to a low of 25. Wind chills are in the upper teens to lower 20s. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/30/2020-7:30AM)
