Winter storm warning issued in Central NY for heavy, blowing snow

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Central Maine including the Waterville area. While any accumulations will be light, the heaviest snow showers will reduce the visibility for short periods of time and create slick spots on area roads. Rain, snow, sleet will become all snow after 1 p.m. The N.C. Department of Transportation reported that black ice had begun to form in parts of the Triangle during rush hour.

In Tazewell, Smyth and Wythe counties in Virginia, melted snow may refreeze overnight as temperatures drop below freezing. Snow accumulation occurred mostly on dirt, grass, trees, and rooftops and was not accurately measurable.

Snow began falling steadily and started to accumulate earlier in the Triad, beginning at about 10 a.m.


An inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow is possible from Greenville to Jacksonville.

The snow and rain mix should end about 7 p.m., Schwenneker said. Highs in the mid 30s and wind chills in the upper 20s.

"Travel will be very hard to impossible, including during the morning commute Wednesday", the weather service said in its warning.
