Oak Hill, WV (WOAY-TV): Below is a screenshot of mid-afternoon radar and where ice and snow reports surfaced from the earlier activity. Note the ice and snow stayed north of our region along I-79.
The cold front will continue to push east of our region and a few waves of moisture will ride along the boundary. The first wave will bring light snow/freezing drizzle overnight and the second round will bring light snow Thursday afternoon. Watch out for dense fog tonight!
On a scale of 1 to 10 for snow impacts to travel…. we give this shot overnight a 3 and Thursday a 2. Since the pavement will not fully dry out before the subfreezing temperatures and snow/freezing drizzle arrive tonight, there will be a few slippery spots Wednesday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through Wednesday morning.
A seasonably cold blast will kick off the weekend with a rapid warm up this weekend into next week with dry weather and great for the outdoors (if you bundle up early this weekend… then shed the layers on Sunday). Showers are possible ahead of a cold front by late Tuesday.
Here’s your full forecast update.
Have a great evening!
