The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory across our region for tonight and tomorrow morning. The winter weather advisory remains in effect from 7:00 pm this evening until 1:00 am Thursday morning.
Tonight’s precipitation is predicted to change from rain to locally heavy snow as temperatures begin to rapidly drop as a cold front passes through the Mid-Atlantic region.
Accumulations of two to four inches of snow are possible in Berryville with three to five inches across the higher ridges. Rain will change to all snow as temperatures drop with the heaviest snow falling between 8:00 pm and midnight.
Temperatures will drop to the lower 30s early this evening before dipping to the lower 20s along the ridges and to near 30 in the valley by morning.
Blustery winds will be from the northwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.
Motorists should use caution when driving on snow covered roads and reduced visibility. Slow down – the life that you save may be your own.
