Special Statement

Statement as of 2:41 PM EST on December 12, 2017

Expires 6:00 PM EST on December 12, 2017


... Difficult travel conditions developing for the Tuesday evening
commute...

Intervals of light to moderate-intensity snow will continue to
impact the Tuesday evening commute. While snow will not be
persistent, travelers can expect rapid changes in visibility along
with a coating of wet snow on asphalt. This will lead to potential
travel difficulties at times. Later tonight... falling
temperatures through the 20s will freeze any snow or wet pavement,
making for slippery travel.

Travelers through the evening commute are advised to be aware for
sudden changes in visibility, as low as one half mile at times,
and to drive slowly in rapidly changing weather conditions.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 7 am Wednesday
morning for western Greenbrier County in southeast West Virginia,
and in Ashe and Watauga counties in northwestern North Carolina.
