Special Statement

Expires 10:30 AM EST on January 30, 2015


... Snow showers along with falling temperatures and windy
conditions to prevail into this afternoon...

Periodic bands of snow will continue to move southeast out of West
Virginia through early afternoon resulting in additional light
snowfall accumulations across the mountains. Added amounts of an
inch or two can be expected with locally higher totals in narrow
bands. Northwest winds should also increase with gusts to 50 or 55
mph possible resulting in blowing snow and reduced visibilities
within the heavier snow bands. Temperatures should continue to
slowly fall into the 20s as even colder air arrives. This will
result in snow sticking to untreated surfaces... with roads
becoming snow covered and slick especially when the more intense
snowfall is occurring. Motorists should be alert for slippery
conditions as well as the strong northwest winds that may make
driving difficult at times.


827 am EST Fri Jan 30 2015

... Wintry mix of snow and freezing rain this morning...

Light snow and flurries along with patchy freezing rain will occur
across the region this morning. Although snowfall should remain
light through 1030 am... light icing may make for slippery roads
especially along the Blue Ridge.

In addition to the light accumulation of snow and some light icing... it
will be windy with temperatures falling into the 20s.

Motorists should be alert for slick Road conditions along with
strong northwest winds this morning.
