Winter Storm Warning in effect from Midnight tonight through Monday

The latest from the National Weather Service…

A complex storm system will develop over the southeastern US today
then begin moving northeast tonight and Monday, eventually toward
the North Carolina coast later in the day Monday. While there
remain some uncertainties, confidence is increasing that this
storm has the potential to bring moderate to heavy snow to much
of the forecast area, especially near and west of the Blue Ridge,
Sunday night through Monday morning.

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO
MIDNIGHT EDT MONDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5
  inches, with localized amounts up to 8 inches, are expected.

* WHERE...Portions of central, south central, southwest and west
  central Virginia, northwest North Carolina and southeast West
  Virginia.

* WHEN...From midnight tonight to midnight EDT Monday night.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on difficult travel conditions,
  including during the morning commute on Monday. Be prepared
  for significant reductions in visibility at times.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather
conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you
must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. The latest road conditions for
the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.

In addition, this is expected to be a heavier, wetter snow than
past snows this winter for the most part. As a result the weight
of several inches of snow could bring down some trees and power
lines, especially any that have already started spring budding.
