Winter Weather Advisory Sunday morning in NE GA for icing concerns

Snowy weekend 2

The National Weather Service has included York County in a large area under a Winter Weather Advisory from 3 to 10 a.m. Sunday because of the threat of freezing rain.

Crews were pretreating roads on Saturday and will mobilize to treat roads as the winter weather arrives, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

After initially calling for a mix of rain and snow on Sunday morning, weather forecasters now believe it will be too warm for a wintry mix.


Freezing rain is expected to cause a thin glaze of ice that will result in slippery conditions on sidewalks, roads and bridges.

The rain ends by late afternoon Sunday, but higher elevations in the North Carolina mountains could see snow showers returning Sunday night as lingering moisture and upsloping northwesterly winds interact in the wake of Sunday's system. Total snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, are expected for many areas, with a few northern mountain and high ridge top locations seeing 3 to 4 inches of snow. Lesser amounts of ice are expected for the southeast half of the county. Heavier amounts of ice are expected to accumulate in the foothills of North Carolina. While temperatures are able to climb above freezing, they won't rise much.
