(WVVA) Heavy snow is possible Sunday through early Monday for southern parts of our viewing area. The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Watches for Mercer, Tazewell, Bland, Wythe and Giles counties within our viewing area.
The heaviest snow from this storm expected to be across western NC and across southwest VA near the NC state line. Here is a look at a few totals that could fall based on the data we’re looking at this afternoon.
Well over a foot of snow, up to 18″ is expected from Grayson County, VA south through the mountains of western NC.
Tazewell, Bland, Wythe, Giles and Mercer counties could see 5-10″.
Totals will drop off dramatically on the northern side of this storm. Buchanan, McDowell, Wyoming, Summers, Raleigh, Greenbrier and Monroe counties could see 3-6″.
Lower totals are likely in Fayette and Pocahontas counties ranging from 1-4″.
Keep in mind that a slight shift in our forecast track could change these totals dramatically. Stay tuned as we update our snow forecast.
Light snow showers are expected overnight with a light coating up to an inch possible, but heavy snow will not move our way until early Sunday morning. Our weather will be cold and dry for Friday and Saturday, with increasing clouds on Saturday ahead of the snow on Sunday and Monday.
