…Significant Ice Accumulations Expected Tonight and Saturday East
of the Blue Ridge…

A significant winter storm, mainly in the form of ice accumulation,
is expected across much of the forecast area east of the Blue Ridge
of Virginia and northern North Carolina beginning late this evening
and continuing through much of the day Saturday.
Ice accumulations in these areas from freezing rain and freezing
drizzle during the next 24 to 36 hours is expected to range from 1/4
to 1/2 inch, with isolated higher amounts. Ice accumulations will be
greatest on trees and power lines, with some lesser accumulations on
road and highway surfaces. These amounts of ice accumulations on
trees and power lines could result in widespread downed trees and
power lines and consequently widespread power outages. Again…it is
important to note that significant and damaging accumulations of ice
are expected across the Virginia Piedmont and into portions of the
North Carolina Piedmont with this winter storm tonight and Saturday.

Further west, mainly west of the Blue Ridge, lesser amounts of ice
and some sleet are expected, but accumulations are generally
expected to be less than 2/10 inch of ice and less than 1/4 inch of
sleet.
