Winter storm expected to impact region this weekend

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Saturday evening through Sunday morning, as a winter storm moves through the region, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Blacksburg.

Heavy snow is possible, with total snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, as an area of low pressure is expected to move northeast to along the Mid-Atlantic coast by Sunday morning. 

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. 

Plan on slippery road conditions.
