A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WILL GO INTO EFFECT SATURDAY MORNING FOR WESTERN GREENBRIER, SUMMERS, MONROE, MERCER, AND TAZEWELL COUNTIES UNTIL 7:00 AM SUNDAY.
See advisory here!
Cold northwesterly winds will carry moisture up our mountains Saturday, so wider-spread, plain snow showers are expected to start Saturday morning and continue on and off throughout the day and into Saturday night. While accumulations don't look major, light snow will still make for slick travel and low visibility at times. Highs Saturday will only top off in the upper 20s and low 30s. We'll be windy as well, with occasional gusts over 25-30 MPH. Snow showers will continue on and off through early Sunday morning, especially at the highest elevations of our western facing slopes.
Most of our area looks to receive 1-2" of snowfall through Sunday morning, with higher amounts of 3 or 4" possible across the rideglines. Western Greenbrier and Pocahontas counties as usual will be hot spots for snow, with 4-7" possible, especially up at Snowshoe Resort!
Additional snow (generally another inch or two) looks possible with another area of low pressure slated to swing through our area Sunday evening-Monday.
Highs will remain in the upper 20s and low 30s through then. At a glance, the beginning of next week looks to remain chilly and rather unsettled. We'll get gradually warming temps into the second half of next week. Make sure to tune in tonight to WVVA News at 5,6,10 (CW) and 11 PM for the latest full forecast!
