  • Winter Weather Advisory Begins At Noon Today In Effect Until 7 am Sunday | Newsradio 1020 KDKA

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for counties along and south of Interstates-88 and 290 until 3 a.m. Sunday. They are calling for "mixed precipitation" with possible snow accumulations of one to two inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze. Temperatures this morning are sticking in the mid to lower 30s and highs this afternoon won't really increase from there either. Over 35 million people across ten states and Washington, DC, were under a storm warning as of Saturday.

Use caution when driving today as some roads may be slippery or snow-covered and visibility reduced.

Forecasters say the heaviest snow is expected to fall late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

The advisory includes portions of east central, eastern, south central and southeast Virginia.


Areas of northwest IN, including Michigan City and Gary, reported between 4 and 6 inches of fresh snow on Saturday, the weather service said. Snowfall totals will likely be affected for those areas.

Travel is hazardous during winter weather and interferes with snow-clearing operations and emergency services.

Slick spots on the roads will remain a concern tonight through early tomorrow morning. VDOT's Facebook page will be updated throughout the storm.
