Snow and stronger wind gust continue overnight, calmer and dry conditions Tuesday afternoon

Today either brought you plenty of snowfall, or you saw none at all. Most of the snowfall was confined to the central portions of the viewing area and also along the eastern portions of the western slopes. The further west you headed, the less snowfall you saw. Mainly due to the warmer temperatures causing most snow that fell to melt on contact. Also, the further east in the viewing area you went, the less snowfall you saw as well. Should have a good list of snowfall totals later tonight.

Overnight, snow will continue to fall across most of the viewing area. Snowfall will begin to break up and taper off as we go into the early morning hours of Tuesday. Some spots Tuesday morning will still be waking up to some snow flakes. This will be mainly the northern portions of our viewing area, as dry air will take over the rest of the region.

Temperatures tonight will drop into the mid/upper 20s, and low 30s. This could cause for some black ice in the morning. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time on the roads tomorrow morning. Fog will create low visibility and black ice will create very slick roads in some spots. Don’t be shocked to see more school delays in the morning.

Wind gust will continue to be strong overnight, between 20-30 mph along the lower elevations, and the higher elevations will see wind gust push 50 mph. Those highest elevations along western Greenbrier and western Pocahontas could see some pretty significant blowing snow as well, which could cause for lower visibility overnight and tomorrow morning. Wind chill factors will make it feel like it is in the teens tomorrow morning, with some of the highest elevations feeling like they are in the single digits.

A WIND ADVISORY is still in effect for Bland, Giles, Greenbrier, Mercer, Monroe, Pocahontas, and Summers county until 12 PM Tuesday.

A WINTER STORM WARNING is still in effect for Western Greenbrier, Southeast Fayette, and Northwest Pocahontas counties until 7 AM Tuesday.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is still in effect for Buchanan, McDowell, Northwest Fayette, and Wyoming counties until 1 AM Tuesday.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is still in effect for Bland, Mercer, Summers, and Tazewell counties until 7 AM Tuesday.

By Tuesday afternoon conditions look to both calm down and dry out. Wind gust will weaken as we go into the afternoon tomorrow, and snow showers will dry out by tomorrow afternoon as well. There will still be a lot of clouds around across the region. Temperatures tomorrow will struggle to get out of the 30s, so it will be chilly for sure. Make sure to bundle up before heading out throughout the day Tuesday.

We stay mainly dry through mid week, with temperatures returning into the 40s. There are a few chances we could see some flurries both Wednesday and Thursday along some of our northern counties. However, not expecting significant snowfall like some saw today. Friday we bring in what looks like a weaker cold front at the moment. Which could bring some rain/snow showers for Friday.

We dry out nicely for the weekend, before returning rain chances into early next week. Stay tuned!

WE STILL HAVE A FEW ADVISORIES, WATCHES AND WARNING ACROSS OUR AREA OVERNIGHT.
