...Wintry Mix Beginning Early Afternoon...

An upper level disturbance over the Tennessee and
Lower Ohio Valleys will move east today, passing
through the Mid-Atlantic Region tonight. A wintry
mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain will accompany
this weather system, beginning across the High Country of North
Carolina, and far western Virgina early this afternoon. Lower
elevations are expected to receive less than an inch of snow, with
a couple inches possible at the highest elevations before
changing to rain or freezing rain. If temperatures remain below 32
degrees then, some ice accretion will be possible. Areas along
the Blue Ridge Parkway will likely see the greatest ice
accumulation with up to a tenth of an inch possible.
