Special Statement

Statement as of 10:20 PM EST on December 11, 2017


A cold front will push through the region tonight leading to
gusty winds, and moisture will move into the area behind it during
the predawn hours of Tuesday. A light mix of patchy snow,
drizzle, and or freezing drizzle is expected to develop between 3
am and 7 am EST. This could lead to a light accumulation of snow
or a light glaze of ice in a few locations by the start of the
morning commute. This could lead to a few slick spots during the
morning commute, especially on untreated roadways and elevated
surfaces and bridges.

As colder air moves into the area, precipitation will transition
to all snow between 5 am and 9 am EST. Scattered to numerous snow
showers are expected during the morning, with scattered snow
showers lingering through late afternoon in locations closer to
the VA and WV border. Overall snow accumulations will be light,
with accumulations in most locations of a dusting to a half inch
of snow. A few locations that receive multiple heavier snow
showers and some Ridgetop locations near the VA border could
receive locally as much as one inch. The additional falling snow
during the day on Tuesday combined with slowly falling
temperatures could lead to some slick spots during the day on
Tuesday through early Tuesday evening, especially on untreated
roadways, ridgetops, and elevated surfaces and bridges.

Use caution when driving late tonight and on Tuesday, especially
on untreated roadways and elevated surfaces and bridges. Slow
down and allow extra time to reach your destination safely.
