Southwest / Central VA:
ROA / LYH / CHO / RIC VA Areas !!!
Get ready for another round of very cold air, as Arctic front pushes through VA during Wednesday and Wednesday evening. Some Snow showers and Snow Squalls are likely mainly between Noon and 7:00 PM from west to east across SW and Central VA.
In the Blue Ridge Mountains, mainly west of ROA to CHO VA, 1″-3″ can be expected during later Wednesday morning, into the early afternoon hours.
For ROA / LYH / and much of Central VA, A Coating to 1″ can be expected during the afternoon and early evening hours. Most areas will see a quick coating, but near 1″ is possible in heavier snow squalls along with greatly reduced visibility.
Temps drop into the single digits by Thursday morning and remain in the teens during the day on Thursday. Dry weather during this time.
The coldest weather occurs during early Friday morning as temps plummet to between -5 and Zero. Friday we reach the low to mid 20’s.
I’m keeping a close eye on another threat for this weekend, that moves in from the MS and TN Valley regions. It appears we start as some snow on Saturday and transition to some Ice and rain for Saturday night into Sunday. Some accumulation of snow and sleet is looking like a good bet for Saturday. I’ll have more on this threat on Thursday, so stay tuned.
