Clearing and Cold

Skies will continue to clear and temperatures will plummet tonight. Under full sunshine tomorrow temperatures get comfortably in the 40s for most of us getting the snow melting process well underway. Wednesday continues this melting theme as temperature rise a little higher.

Speaking of snow melt, each night and morning, from now until Thursday morning, slick roads will be a major concern. As the snow will melt, and the water will re-freeze, resulting in the formation of ice. Be safe out on the roads this morning.

Here are some preliminary snowfall totals across the area from the recent storm...
Whitetop 24 inches
Independence 22 inches
Galax 20.5 inches
Wytheville 19 inches
Roanoke 14.3 inches
Blacksburg 13.2 inches

Forecast Discussion

High pressure builds in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Clearing the skies and allowing the temperatures to make a rebound into the 40's. We will stay dry at least, and the snow melting process can begin.

We have another storm system moving from the Midwest to our area by Thursday night. Coupled with warmer air, the possibility of snow doesn't exist. As this system approaches, cloud coverage increase Thursday, and showers start Thursday night. Friday, moderate rain is expected with this system, as well as those showers lingering into the weekend. The storm system exits off the Mid-Atlantic Coast Sunday. Allowing skies to become partly cloudy and keeping temperatures near seasonal averages.
