WINTER STORM | Snow, rain falling throughout the Valley

The amount of ice accumulation is predicted to be less than a tenth of an inch, and snowfall could total 1-3 inches.

A sprawling storm closed schools, snarled travel and threatened homeless populations across a portion of the U.S. Wednesday.

Another round of winter weather is expected Wednesday as a low pressure system drags in snow showers, freezing rain, and eventually some rain on Wednesday.

"WEDNESDAY: "Snow likely, some freezing rain & sleet mixes in SE.High: "34.Wind: "ESE 10-15 miles per hour, Gusting to 30mph.Snowfall: "SE: "1-2", Milwaukee: "2-3", NW: "2-5". Visibilities will also be reduced. Since the window for snow and sleet is just a few hours, odds are stacked against a significant accumulation. Clearing, warmer. High: Near 50.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.


The evening rush hour could messy.

That freezing rain could leave a light coating of ice on untreated roads, trees and power lines. So there could still be some icy spots/issues for parts of the state into the early morning of Thursday, especially in northern CT. School delays are not out of the question, but closings on Thursday look unlikely.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for much of southern Ontario, including Toronto, saying that freezing rain is "threatening" for Wednesday night.

One to two inches of snow is expected between 10:00 p.m. Tuesday and 10:00 a.m. Wednesday. Most of the freezing rain will be limited to a glaze (less than 1/10th of an inch). The tricky part of this system will be all about the transition from snow, to sleet, to rain. So towns like Richwood, Webster Springs, Beckley, Lewisburg and Bluefield are on Winter Storm alert for probable ice and snow impacts. We'd likely see 50s if not for the clouds and rain chances.
