Pinpoint Weather: Morning rain followed by gusty winds, colder air, and mountain snow

Weather Blog

Prepare for a wet commute on this Monday morning.

Rain continues to move in from the south. The rain is expected to taper off by late morning to a scattered showers before ending this afternoon.

The rest of the day will be windy with wind gusts over 25mph possible. Expect highs this afternoon in the mid and upper 50s.

Cold air will begin to move in across the region today. Wrap around moisture on the backside of a departing low will catch up the cold air and result in snow showers late today through tomorrow morning.

While a few flurries are possible tonight into tomorrow morning as far east as the Parkway, any accumulating snow looks to be for the mountains, especially the west-facing slopes of our higher elevations.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for our westernmost counties as the snow showers in these areas could lead to some slippery road conditions this afternoon through Tuesday.

Tuesday afternoon will be much colder and continued windy. Winds may gust over 30 mph. Tuesday’s highs will only manage the 30s and 40s across Southwest Virginia.

Stay safe and healthy.
