Winter Weather Advisory In Effect Until 7p Wednesday


According to Becky White of WSLM RADIO, there is a winter weather advisory in affect from from 3a Wednesday through 7p Wednesday.

“Looking at our radar maps and talking with the National Weather Service and our meteorologist partners at Accuweather, the snow should begin falling before sunrise on Wednesday,” said White.

She said accumulations of between 1-3 inches are expected between 5a and 11a.

The snow might end as light freezing rain or drizzle, she said. “This would create a glaze of ice on most surfaces.”

White said the main impacts in the region would be hazardous road conditions.

“This comes into play primarily with the Wednesday morning commute,” she said. “Expect travel difficulties and plan for delays in getting to your destination. According to the weather models here at WSLM, the snow will quickly accumulate on road surfaces.”

Other impacts of this weather system will be a brief period of light freezing rain as the snow ends on Wednesday morning.

A few hundredths of an inch of accumulation of ice are possible before the end of the day.

A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.

“Also be sure and listen to WSLM during the day and evening for weather information every 20 minutes,” said White. “And keep WSLMRADIO.COM handy on your phone, tablet or PC to check for weather information and LIVE weather from the WSLM WEATHER STATION.”
