Several inches of snow expected on top of ice today

BLUEFIELD — The region could be looking at several inches of snow on top of ice once a strong winter storm passes through Monday.

Much of the region is under a Winter Storm Warning today.

Rain fell last night and through the early part of the morning today. As cold air moved in from the northwest, rain changed over to sleet, and then eventually snow. Snow is expected to continue through the morning and into the afternoon before tapering off later today.

A major concern is a layer of ice underneath any snow due to any sleet and rain freezing over.

By storm's end, we could see 6-10 inches of snow along the I-64 corridor and west of I-77.

We clear out for tonight, but temperatures plummet to near zero by sunrise tomorrow morning.
