Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 7:36 AM EST Nov. 15, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Light snow could affect the evening commute in some areas...

Mainly rain or drizzle is expected across the area through early
afternoon as a low pressure system approaches the area. However,
as the system begins to depart later this afternoon and tonight,
colder air will move into the region leading to a chance from rain
to light snow. Light snow accumulations of less than an inch are
possible. The best chances for amounts around a half of an inch
to just under an inch will be north of mountain parkway and
locations above 2000 feet near the VA border. Accumulations should
mainly be confined to grassy and elevated surfaces as
temperatures should remain around or just above freezing during
the evening commute. However, a few slick or snow covered spots
will be possible, especially on ridges, bridges, and overpasses.
