Winter Storm Watch: Up To 7 Inches Of Snow Coming Wednesday


A Winter Weather Advisory and a Wind Advisory are in effect for Ashe and Watauga County Tuesday. Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing along the coast Tuesday evening.

Daytime temperatures will be in the 20s and teens the second half of the week. About 6-8 inches of snow is expected to accumulate during this time, accompanied by wind gusts of 20 to 35 miles per hour. There's also another clipper moving to the south that MAY spread a bit of light snow across parts of CNY later Wednesday night, especially around and south of Rt. Plan on slippery road conditions.

In terms of accumulation, the shifting bands actually work in favor of those who want to keep their shoveling to a minimum, as the snow spreads out over a larger area and puts a cap on heavier local totals.

High pressure moves in by midday Monday, bringing an end to this first round of lake-effect. There's the potential for more lake-effect bands in the area, with multiple models converging on the possibility of one heavier band lining up along western portions of the lakeshore, extending into Lorain and Medina counties, pointing southeast. It will likely be the coldest air the region has seen so far, with wind chills in the single digits to below zero.

The remainder of the work week will have continuing chances for lake-effect snow showers and flurries.

Take a breath, snow shovelers, but get ready for another dose.

On Tuesday, temperatures in the Detroit area will continue to decline during the day with a high of 17 and a wind chill as low as minus 6; the low Tuesday will be about 11.
