BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - The Two Virginias saw a few to several inches of snow on top of ice and sleet Monday from a powerful winter storm.

The mess began in the early morning hours as rain gave way to freezing rain and sleet, making roadways slick through the A.M. commute.

Sleet changed over to snow by Monday morning and early afternoon, dumping several inches on much of the WVVA  viewing area.

Multiple accidents were reported across the Two Virginias throughout Monday, from tractor trailer accidents on Interstate 77, to an overturned ambulance on Route 460 in Tazewell County.

No major injuries were reported.

We clear out for tonight, but temperatures plummet to single digits and some around 0 by sunrise tomorrow morning. Black ice becomes a major concern for overnight and early AM travel.
