Patchy Light Snow Expected

Patchy light snow across the higher elevations into this afternoon. A band of light snow mixed with sleet will continue across the region into this afternoon. The heaviest snow can be expected across the higher elevations from the Virginia Highlands south to Bent Mountain including the Blue Ridge Parkway. A quick coating to one half inch could occur mainly on grassy surfaces. However motorists should be alert for developing slick spots especially on area bridges and overpasses especially over the higher elevations through mid afternoon.
