ACCUMULATING SNOW POSSIBLE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL TRACK SOUTH OF THE REGION ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. MOISTURE WRAPPING AROUND THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING ACCUMULATING SNOW FROM WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.

AT THIS POINT...ONE TO THREE INCHES APPEAR POSSIBLE FROM THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY SOUTH...WITH LIGHTER ACCUMULATIONS FURTHER NORTH CLOSER TO THE INTERSTATE 64 CORRIDOR.

HOWEVER...CURRENT TRENDS INDICATE THAT THE ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE IN LOCATIONS NEAR THE TENNESSEE AND VIRGINIA BORDERS. ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ABOVE 2500 FEET IN THE CUMBERLAND MOUNTAINS...LOCALIZED ACCUMULATIONS AROUND 4 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE.

THIS SNOWFALL WILL BRING POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS TRAVEL AND LONGER TRAVEL TIMES FOR THE THURSDAY MORNING COMMUTE.

THOSE PLANNING TO TRAVEL ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY MORNING SHOULD SLOW DOWN AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION AND MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
