A WIND ADVISORY is in effect for Mercer, Tazewell, Wythe, Bland, and Giles counties
Have the good raincoat before heading out, and be careful! Early this morning we’ll be cloudy with areas of fog, showers, and occasional freezing rain. Ice will be most prevalent along and east of I-77 and across the I-64 corridor. Slick areas, especially on untreated surfaces, and bridges/overpasses will be possible Tuesday morning. Into Tuesday afternoon temps will eventually warm out of the 30s into the upper 40s/low 50s.
Though no more ice will be expected w/temps above freezing, rounds of heavy rain will be possible throughout the afternoon. It will get windy as well, so localized flooding, downed trees/limbs and/or power loss cannot be ruled out. We will start to dry out overnight, but temps will fall into the upper 20s/low 30s. We will see a few light snow showers into after midnight and into early Wednesday; slippery spots on roads may still be an issue into Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations look little to none, with around a 0.5-1.0″ or so possible in Western Greenbrier and Pocahontas counties. Most of Wednesday and Thursday (Valentine’s Day) look drier and sunny, but several more chances of rain, snow, and even a little more ice may reappear into the weekend. Stay tuned!
