Mainly quiet through Saturday…heavier snow still possible Sunday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Grab the coats and drive safely! With temps well below freezing, in the 20s and teens this morning, patchy black ice will be possible this AM. More sunshine will emerge into the afternoon and highs will reach the upper 30s/low 40s. A weak cold front will push into the area overnight tonight, bringing a few scattered snow showers into early Friday morning, but little to no accumulation is expected. Friday afternoon and most of Saturday look partly cloudy and dry with chilly highs in the 30s.

A system will begin to approach us out of the Gulf of Mexico by Saturday evening. When the system first approaches us, it may be a mixture of ice and rain, changing to all snow into Sunday and lasting through Monday morning. Large uncertainty still exists about this system. Forecast model guidance is now split this morning on putting the heaviest snow down across our area (American model), or instead further to our south across the Virginia Highlands and NC High Country (European model).  As of now, Bluefield and areas south will experience the heaviest snowfall- but this could still change. Stay tuned as we continue to track this potential Winter Storm and more short-range data comes in.
