A slow moving upper-level low pressure system continues to occupy the viewing area this evening, allowing for hit-or-miss snow showers to continue. These snow showers will continue into the overnight hours and snow will be heavy at times.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Buchanan until SATURDAY AT 7 PM.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Tazewell, Mercer, Summers, Western Greenbrier and Western/Northern Pocahontas counties until SUNDAY at 7 AM. These counties are along the ridgeline and could receive an additional 1-2 inches of snowfall overnight.
Temperatures will fall into the low-mid 20s tonight, meaning that any wet or slushed over roads will refreeze tonight, creating slick and dangerous travel conditions. Black ice will be a huge concern tonight as roads refreeze. Take it easy and slow on the roads tonight and for any early Sunday morning travels. The best thing to do is just STAY HOME!
We look drier for the second half of your weekend, but we will still be a tad unsettled. We will start Sunday off with a few isolated snow showers and dangerous travel conditions. Be sure to give yourself extra time when heading to breakfast, work or church into Sunday morning. If you can, please stay home and off the roads, at least through the Sunday morning hours.
Into Sunday afternoon, most will get a brief break from the snowfall, with just a few flurries hanging around. Temperatures will still be cold, with highs likely struggling to get out of the low-mid 30s.
Another disturbance will cross the viewing area into Sunday night and into M.L.K Day, bringing another shot at scattered snow showers and slick travel. Snow showers will be mainly confined to the western slopes and the ridgeline Sunday night and into Monday morning.
Sunday nights snowfall will likely bring an additional 1-2 inches along the ridgeline and western slopes, with higher amounts possible along the highest elevations. Eastward facing slope counties will see low accumulation of snowfall Sunday night, as this will be an upslope event.
We should notice drier conditions into Monday afternoon, with temperatures only climbing into the upper 20s and low 30s.
A lot of snow to track here, but we have you covered. Tune into WVVA News at 6 and tonight after the game on NBC for the latest 10-day forecast.
