ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Rain, snow, and sleet are all fair game this Super Bowl Sunday in Southwest and Central Virginia.

A storm system will impact the region this Sunday, bringing widespread rain to the Piedmont and foothills and a wintry mix to the mountains. Snow and ice accumulation are more likely along and west of the Blue Ridge, but the warm ground and areas of above-freezing temperatures will impact amounts. For those who do see snow, it will mainly be a wet slushy snow.

The New River Valley and portions of southeastern West Virginia could see one to four inches of snow and sleet. Higher totals are possible at our highest elevations. The Roanoke Valley and portions of the Alleghany Highlands will generally see a coating to three inches of snow and sleet. While brief periods of wintry mix are possible east of the Blue Ridge, rain is more likely during the day. Little to no accumulation is anticipated in the greater-Lynchburg area and Danville.

Overall, plan for extra travel time and use caution when hitting those roadways on Super Bowl Sunday as the weather may get messy. It will be noticeably colder with highs in the 30s.

Increasing sunshine is anticipated Monday with a warming trend ahead. Highs will be in the upper 40s and 50s with breezy winds blowing through. By Valentine’s Day, partly to mostly sunny skies will be overhead. Afternoon temperatures will be in the milder middle 50s and lower 60s.

The mild pattern will continue through the middle of the week. However, our next round of showers is slated for Thursday. Cooler weather is anticipated by the end of the week.
