Patchy Ice Possible Overnight

The light snow event was moving out of the forecast area this evening as colder drier air filtered into the region from the west. Temperatures to the west of the Blue Ridge, where the snow has mostly ended outside some light snow or flurries, have fallen into the upper 20s to lower 30s since sunset.

Many of these areas saw a light snow Saturday afternoon and evening on the order of 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches of a wet snow. With temperatures dropping below freezing quickly after the snow ended, it is quite possible that patches of ice, possibly some black ice, as well as refrozen slush and snow will linger on some roads, highways, and sidewalks until temperatures again get above freezing after mid-morning Sunday.

If you plan to be traveling or out in these areas overnight and early Sunday, be alert for patches of ice, slush, and snow on roads, highways, and sidewalks. Reduce speed, allow extra time to reach your destination, and allow extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
