tuesday we will be impacted by a dynamic and vigorous storm system. because the storm appears to be moving in earlier, that means the storm will have a little more cold air to work with. so, we think the precipitation will start around midnight sunday night/monday morning in the form of snow and continue as snow as it moves farther east through at least midday monday. after that, we could see a switchover in some spots the mountains will likely stay snow for a longer period by sometime monday afternoon to a wintry mix of freezing rain and snow, maybe even some sleet. we think
6:20 pm
mix will changeover to plain rain for a period of time. then we could see the rain change back over to some snow before ending midday tuesday. as far as snow and ice accumulations, here's what we're thinking: roanoke, nrv, southern shenandoah: 2-5" of snow, 0.10- 0.25" of ice highlands: 5-9" of snow, 0.10- 0.25" of ice southside, lynchburg: coating-2" of snow, trace- 0.25" of ice spine of the blue ridge: 2-5" of snow, 0.25"+ of ice winter storm warnings will likely be issued for this event over the weekend. temperatures will reach the low-to-mid 30s on monday, climbing into the lower 40s by later tuesday afternoon. a very weak piece of energy may impact us on wednesday morning, bringing more light mountain snow showers. otherwise, we will see more clouds than sun on wednesday with highs in the low-to-mid 40s. thursday and friday both look partly sunny and dry. temperatures will continue to rise into the upper 40s on
