Pinpoint Weather: Mountain snow for some, but blustery and much colder for everyone

Weather Blog

You’ll need a winter coat all through this Tuesday thanks to bitterly cold temperatures and gusty winds.

Frigid morning temperatures in the 20s and 30s will feel even colder with the winds factored in. Morning wind chills in the teens and 20s are expected.

While a few flurries are possible this morning as far east as the Parkway, accumulating snowfall looks to continue mainly for the mountains, especially the west-facing slopes of our higher elevations.

Winter Weather Advisories continue for our WV counties and Tazewell, Smyth, and Grayson Counties in VA. Slippery road conditions can be expected today in these advised areas. Also, gusty winds may lead to blowing snow, reducing visibilities for motorists in these counties.

A Winter Storm Warning continues for western Greenbrier and northwestern Pocahontas County as total snowfall amounts of 4 to 8” are forecast. Use caution on roads and sidewalks in these areas also as slick spots can be expected.

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

By mid to late week, afternoon highs are back in the mid 50s.

Stay safe and healthy.
