...Bitter Cold This Morning...
...Potential For Icy Travel...

An arctic airmass encompasses the region this morning, with wind
chill values ranging from 5 above zero, to as much as 10 below
zero. Coupled with the bitter cold you may encounter icy roads.
Snow showers which occurred across areas west of the Blue Ridge
yesterday and last night, deposited accumulating snow. With
temperatures in the teens, road treatments are not being very
effective at these colder temperatures.

Temperatures will struggle to get above freezing today. However,
skies are expected to be sunny, winds diminishing for the
afternoon.

Those headed outdoors this morning need to dress appropriately.
Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken,
making sure that you dress in layers, wear a hat and gloves.
Travelers are urged to use caution, as some of the roads across
there area are icy, and will remain that way until later this
afternoon.
