A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR WESTERN GREENBRIER, SUMMERS, MERCER, TAZEWELL FROM 7 AM SATURDAY THROUGH 7 AM SUNDAY.
Tonight will bring cold temperatures as we drop into the mid and upper 20s. Anything wet on the roadways could ice up and any side roads that saw a little bit of snow accumulate during the day, will likely be slick tonight. We won’t see many more additional snow showers, but an isolated one can’t be ruled out and we will be cold enough for snow to stick tonight. Main roads should be decent throughout the evening except during any snow showers.
Saturday, will be pretty unsettled for most of us. Upslope snow showers will be filing through during the daytime with the chance of some snow squalls mixed in. Snow squalls will provide brief bursts of heavy snow, along with gusty winds which will lead to some difficult travel when they pass over. Likely most of the snow accumulation we see this weekend will happen on this day, especially during the evening hours. Temperatures will be cool with highs in the low 30s.
Sunday some lingering snow showers remain a possibility but chances are low. Still a bit brisk for most with highs in the low to mid 30s across the board, winds at least are dying down at this point making being outdoors slightly more bearable.
Monday another quick hitting disturbance glances by the area bringing the risk of a few scattered snow showers to some. Not everyone will see them, especially east of the mountains, but it bears mentioning as it will be another annoying part about a Monday. Highs in the 30s are expected for most.
When all is said and done between tonight and Monday morning most will pick up 1 to 3 inches of snow. A lot of this will come during the evening Saturday and into Sunday morning. There could be some locally higher amounts in the mountains where we are expecting 5+ inches. Snow squalls will make for rapidly changing road conditions, especially Saturday night.
Tuesday brings some slow improvement in the temperatures but in reality it just brings us up to average as we head towards the middle of the week. Clouds remain in the forecast forecast which will hinder us getting any warmer.
Wednesday could bring some unsettled conditions back into the region with some mountain snow showers. This signal has been on and off for a while, chances are low for now but could grow stronger in the next few days. Snow or not, we’ll see a cloudy day with cooler temperatures than the day before.
Thursday, temeperatures will make a quick rise as another disturbance lines up to pass through the region. Likely to be a more rain event at first seeing as how we will flirt with the 40 degree mark, some snow showers could mix in overnight.
In the extended forecast unsettled conditions continue to file into the two Virginias. We’re also watching a cold snap that could happen as we enter into February, there have been some long term hints for this, just remember past 10 days it’s hard to say for sure!
