ROANOKE, Va. – Winter weather is on its way to Southwest and Central Virginia.
On Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for the New River Valley, Roanoke Valley and Highlands due to a combination of snow and ice. A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect until 4 p.m. Wednesday for Southside and Lynchburg, where freezing rain in the morning will change to a cold rain later in the day.

Depending on where you are you’ll see no or very little snow to more than 6 inches!
Because of how this system works, many will see ice, as well as snow.
“Ice accumulations up to two-tenths of an inch possible along the Blue Ridge,” according to the Watch.
That ice will make driving difficult and could lead to some power outages.
