Pinpoint Weather: Colder and windy, mountain snow for some

Weather Blog

It’s a cold and windy start to this Wednesday. Anticipate wind chills at times in the 20s. Bundle up!

Winds will remain gusty through the morning hours. Gusts near 50 mph can be expected in parts of the Roanoke Valley and New River Valley.

Motorists should stay alert for sudden gusts that could jostle high-profile vehicles during the morning commute. While winds will subside somewhat this afternoon, it will still be a bit breezy at times.

It will be a colder day with highs only in the 30s west of the Parkway and mid 40s east of the Parkway.

A disturbance is bringing additional snow showers to the higher elevations of a few of our West Virginia counties this morning. Chances for snow accumulation will be highest along the west-facing slopes of our western Pocahontas County and Greenbrier Counties. Anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow in these areas could lead to slick roads. Elsewhere, we will stay dry.

Next best chance for wintry weather holds off until early next week.

Stay safe and healthy.
