Midnight Update:
Freezing rain and heavy plain rain will continue overnight, with freezing rain lingering, especially for areas north of I-64.  Icy conditions and localized flooding will continue to cause travel issues and power outages overnight with low temperatures hovering around the freezing mark.  Wednesday will feature the chance for some light snow, with high temperatures only in the lower 30s. Colder, yet drier conditions return for Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid-20s.  Another chance for wintry precipitation returns this weekend, with highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
Freezing rain, sleet, rain, and snow will all be possible across the viewing area tonight into Wednesday. Icy conditions, especially on elevated surfaces, will make driving dangerous this evening, especially for areas along and north of I-64, where ice accumulations up to 0.25” are possible.

TONIGHT: The heaviest rainfall will be this evening into early Wednesday morning, tapering off to a drizzle by daybreak Wednesday. Overnight low temperatures will be around 26 degrees by early Wednesday morning, so icy spots will continue to be a concern.

WEDNESDAY: Rainfall will diminish, with a changeover to a light, slushy snow possible during the day. The best chance for any accumulating snow, looks to be along and north of I-64, with a dusting to 1” of snow possible. Wednesday high temperatures will be around 33 degrees.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Skies will become partly cloudy, with overnight low temperatures falling to 15 degrees by early Thursday.

THURSDAY: Drier and colder conditions return for Thursday, with partly sunny skies and a high of only 24 degrees.

FRIDAY: Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with a high of 25 degrees.

WEEKEND: Snow showers are possible on Saturday, yet the latest weather data is delaying the bulk of the precipitation until Sunday, with a better chance for a wintry mix and snow. Saturday high temperatures will be around 32 degrees, with Sunday morning low temperatures around 25 degrees, and Sunday high temperatures around 28 degrees.

NEXT WEEK: Temperatures remain cold into early next week, with highs in the 20s.
