Wintry Mix Possible Tonight

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect tonight and early tomorrow morning for most of western Virginia. Temperatures should drop below freezing tonight in the areas shaded in purple. A mix of sleet and freezing rain could cause some slick spots in these locations. This will quickly change over to all rain by mid morning on Sunday as warmer air moves into the region.

Central and eastern Virginia will miss out on most of the wintry weather, though some ice pellets could mix in with the rain tonight and early tomorrow morning. Surface temperatures will remain above freezing during the entire event, so this shouldn't cause major troubles on the roads. We will continue to monitor the situation and have more updates later this evening.
