Augusta County under winter storm warning

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Snow 11

It’s a messy winter weather morning. From WHSV TV-3:

**The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning until 7:00pm today. This is due to a wintry mix and accumulating snow. Travel difficulties are expected.**

Precipitation transitions to all snow this morning. Snow showers continue through the afternoon. Moderate to heavy snow between is expected at least through early afternoon. Snow showers will become lighter and slowly taper later this afternoon. Forecast amounts look to range from 5″-8″ with locally higher amounts. Southeastern Augusta County could see slightly lower accumulations as more sleet may mix in there. Travel will be hampered today. Stay with the First Alert Storm Team for the latest. Temperatures will fall through the 30s and eventually into the 20s this afternoon.

Slushy wet areas tonight will turn into slick spots/ice as temperatures fall to the single digits by early Friday morning. Wind chill values will be below 0° Friday morning. Skies will gradually clear tonight.

Most schools are closed in the Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta County area. Heavy rain overnight turned into sleet during the early morning hours with the temperature hovering right around freezing, with snow beginning to mix in a little after 9am. For complete closings and weather updates check WHSV TV-3 and NBC-29.

Stay safe out there….
