Winter weather advisory in effect as snow arrives

Winter weather advisories have been issued for counties in Central New York for what meteorologists are calling a "long-duration, light snow event".

Snow will be possible early Wednesday with a high near 38.

Places on the Tug Hill could see 10 to 18 inches of snow through those two days.

Another system on Tuesday night will bring minor snow accumulations to Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee, mainly in the higher elevations.

Six to 12 inches of snow could accumulate in some of the state's highest elevations by Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Light accumulations are expected tonight and Tuesday, but more significant accumulations are expected Tuesday night into Wednesday night.

Drivers can expect slippery roads conditions, including during the morning commute.

Isolated to scattered snow showers are anticipated tonight in Dickenson and Buchanan counties in Virginia.

"These dumps of snow will be kind of like a summer thunderstorm", Casey said.

"A winter weather advisory means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties", the weather service said.
