BLUEFIELD — A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of the region due to a threat of freezing rain and snow tonight and early Tuesday morning. And a second storm system could impact the region Wednesday.

The winter weather advisory is in effect from 2 a.m. until noon Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service in Blacksburg, Va.

Freezing rain is possible tonight with snow anticipated in elevations above 2,500 feet.

Untreated roads and surfaces could be become slick and hazardous — particularly during the early morning commute Tuesday. Light icing can also be expected on trees and power lines, according to the advisory.

A second approaching storm system could bring accumulating snowfall to the region Wednesday. At this point, up to 4 inches of snow or more could be possible Wednesday.
