000 WWUS84 KMRX 241538 AAA SPSMRX Special Weather Statement...UPDATED National Weather Service Morristown TN 1138 AM EDT Sat Mar 24 2018 TNZ018-043-045-047-VAZ001-002-005-006-008-241800- Johnson-Southeast Greene-Unicoi-Southeast Carter-Lee-Wise-Scott- Russell-Washington- Including the cities of Mountain City, Cedar Creek, Erwin, Roan Mountain, Jonesville, Wise, Norton, Gate City, Lebanon, and Abingdon 1138 AM EDT Sat Mar 24 2018 ...Snow accumulations and slippery roads in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee Mountains... Snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches can be expected through the early afternoon across much of Wise, Russell, and Washington counties in Virginia, as well as some of the higher elevations of Johnson and Carter counties in Tennessee. Some isolated locations may see up to 3 inches. The snow is expected to gradually transition to and mix with rain as warmer temperatures move into the area. Because of recent warm surface temperatures, most snow accumulation is expected to remain on grassy and elevated surfaces with the exception of the highest elevations. Any snow that accumulates is expected to melt this afternoon as warmer air arrives and snow changes to rain. If traveling, motorists should be cautious on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots develop first, and be prepared for limited visibilities at times. $$
