UPDATE: Wintry Mix Making For A Slick AM Commute

Posted:

(WVVA) -- Low pressure to our south continues to push moisture into the Two Virginias that began as rain Sunday, but turned to a wintry mix of rain/sleet/freezing rain/snow Sunday night.

This wintry mix will continue through Monday morning's commute, possibly making roads slushy or icy. North of Rt 460 and east of I77, mainly snow will fall and mix with sleet across lower terrain. Higher snow/sleet amounts are expected in this area.

Winter Storm warnings have been issued for Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, and Pocahontas Counties. Accumulations will be highest in these counties with amounts reaching 5-9". Parts of Fayette county may also see totals this high, but the county remains under a Winter Weather Advisory. Lower snow/sleet amounts are expected in Raleigh, Mercer, Giles, Bland, & Wythe counties at roughly 2-5 inches. From Bluefield into Tazewell county, McDowell, Wyoming, and Buchanan, a trace to about 2 inches are expected.

Winter weather will become more scattered and spotty Monday afternoon as the storm moves east. There is still a slight chance for a rain or snow shower through the evening and temperatures will drop back into the 20s Monday night. Black ice becomes an issue for Tuesday morning's commute, but overall temperatures continue to warm up through these final few days of winter.
