Very light weekend snow possible - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Very light weekend snow possible

Light snow is possible, with one round moving in tonight and another on Saturday.

As a cold front moves into the region Friday into Friday night, rain will fall.  As temperatures drop, if moisture sticks around, the rain could change to snow. 

For Friday night, accumulations would mainly be west of Interstate 81 with a dusting to a half inch possible.  West slope areas, especially in West Virginia could see an inch of snow.

Another piece of energy comes across the area on Saturday.  This will cause low pressure to form along the coast which could put more snow in the east with less in the west, but accumulations will still stay light.  An inch could fall for areas along and east of Highway 501.  Elsewhere an additional dusting to half inch is possible.

Cold air will move moving in with strong winds gusts to 35 mph.  The combination of the two will make it feel like 20 to 25 during the day and 5 to 10 tonight.
