Winter storm warning for heavy snow issued for Virginia-side counties

BLUEFIELD — An approaching winter storm is still on track to impact the region although the heaviest snowfall totals are expected in Southwest Virginia.

The winter storm watch has been upgraded to a winter storm warning for most of Southwest Virginia, including Tazewell, Bland and Wythe counties. Mercer, McDowell and Buchanan counties remain under a winter storm watch — although the watch could be upgraded to a warning later today.

The winter storm warning is in effect from 6 a.m. Wednesday until 6 p.m. Thursday. The winter storm watch also is in effect for Wednesday morning through Thursday night.

Accumulations of 4 to 8 inches of snow are expected with 6 to 12 inches possible eastward. The snow is expected to be heavy at times.

A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Travel conditions can be become hazardous and snow that is heavy and wet could lead to sporadic power outages.
