MARTINSVILLE, VA – As we have experienced a warmer and less snowy winter this season, things might be changing sooner than we expected.
Thursday afternoon into the evening, forecast models have been hinting for a week that our coverage area could see a light, accumulation of snow.
With the forecast models being that far out in advance and predicting this event ahead of time, it is a sign to show that they are always not wrong, but sometimes accurate.
As a stationary front is located to the south us in North Carolina, it is expected to stall out and linger around until early Friday morning.
Cold air will be in place late Wednesday evening through Friday night, which could allow snow to stick to the grassy areas and a few spots on the road, especially in the shaded areas.
With that in mind, we could see a few areas of black ice overnight Thursday and into Friday morning, which could alter school schedules.
Our weatherman Dustin Staples will be keeping a close eye on our first chance of accumulating snow this week.
