Snow, ice to cause slippery roads, scattered power outages Wednesday
FutureTracker - 2 p.m. WednesdayThe backside of our system moves through later on, producing another mix of snow, freezing rain, sleet and rain. This may be your best chance of light snow accumulation in parts of the New River Valley. We still think the bulk of snow accumulation will be farther north. Snow accumulation forecast for Wednesday, 12/16/2020Ice is still a concern for a large part of the area, given the fact that there’s a layer of above-freezing air just a few thousand feet up. Higher totals will be possible in parts of the New River Valley, Roanoke Valley and near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
