Pockets of freezing rain or drizzle will be possible through the night and into early Saturday morning in parts of the New River Valley and Highlands. Slick spots are possible along untreated roads or walkways. Temperatures will gradually increase by Saturday, changing any remaining showers to a rain in all locations. Elsewhere, leftover showers are possible along with clouds and fog. Lows hold steady in the mid and upper 30s.

Another disturbance will bring additional rain to the area late Saturday. The third wave of rain will enter Sunday afternoon with the actual cold front. This is the one that could cause a few of the streams to run high and create ponding water in the roads as the rain may be heavy at times Sunday night into Monday morning. We can’t even rule out a thunderstorm.

Total 4-day rainfall totals will likely be in the 1-3″ range with isolated higher amounts in the mountains.

Rainfall totals could close in on 1-2" for some.
