Icy roads and frigid temperatures through Tuesday

Posted:
WVVA -- Bitter cold air returning to the Two Virginias…

A passing storm system brought rain much of the day Monday-leaving ponding on many roadways. As temperatures fell into the teens Monday night, wet roads froze over and winds from the west-northwest increased.  

Snow accumulations were on the lighter side with a trace to an inch possible for most. However, higher elevations may see 2-3 inches of fluffy snow through Tuesday afternoon. Even light snow amounts can still cause hazardous travel-especially when combined with black ice.

Wind chills will also be a major concern on Tuesday. With temperatures in the teens and wind gusts to 30 mph possible, it will felt close to and below 0 for much of the morning. Wind Chill Advisories have been issued for elevations above 2500 ft in Tazewell, Bland, Mercer, & Summers Counties through Noon Tuesday. Western Greenbrier County is under a Winter Weather Advisory for icy roads, gusty winds and 2-3 inches of snow through Noon Tuesday.

Snow showers and flurries will taper off Tuesday afternoon, but clouds linger. Skies will try to clear out Tuesday night, but that will allow temperatures to get a few degrees colder than Monday night. Temperatures remain chilly through the remainder of the week and turn mild for the upcoming weekend.
