Winter Storm Warning issued February 20 at 4:50AM EST until February 20 at 4:00PM EST by NWS
...Threat for Winter Precipitation Diminishes Today...
.A winter storm was moving across the region this morning as cold air moved southwest along the east side of the Appalachians from an area of high pressure across the northeastern U.S. Between late Sunday evening and early this morning, several inches of snow fell across areas along and west of the Blue Ridge and mainly north of U.S. 460. This area of heavy snow and sleet that moved across the region earlier this morning was shifting north of I-64 and will continue to do so this morning. However, pockets of light freezing rain and freezing drizzle will linger across the region through the morning and into the afternoon in northern areas until temperatures slowly creep above freezing.
While additional accumulations of snow and sleet are expected to be minor, ice accumulations from freezing rain and freezing drizzle will remain possible through the morning in the south and well into the afternoon across the north until temperatures finally rise above freezing.
...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM EST THIS AFTERNOON...
