Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
532 AM EST Fri Dec 9 2016

The Arctic cold front moved across the Appalachians during the
first half of yesterday. The unseasonably cold air mass behind it
is firmly entrenched over the area. Areas of light snow was observed
across most of southeast West Virginia, with flurries or light
snow showers extending as far east as the New River Valley and the
Mountain Empire of Virginia. Clear skies were noted east of the
Blue Ridge. Current temperatures running from the mid teens to the
upper 20s combined with northwest winds and produced cold wind
chills in the single digits to the teens. A few elevated locations
such as Hot Springs saw periods of sub-zero wind chill values.

Except for the Virginia and North Carolina piedmont, little in
the way of temperature recovery is expected today under variable
amounts of cloud cover. Highs should only top out in the 20s west
of the Blue Ridge, and in the mid/upper 30s in eastern sections.
Light snow or flurries will continue as well at times, but the
best chance of light accumulations of a couple inches or less
would be in western Greenbrier County in West Virginia. Wind
chills will still be on the low side. While northwest winds
decrease later tonight, lows will only be in the teens to the low

Conditions then begin to moderate for the weekend. The next
frontal system to affect our area is not until late Sunday into
Monday which should bring mainly rain to our area.
