Cold, blustery with blowing snow Monday
Highs only reach the 20s and 30s Monday
Snow tapers off overnight as winds continue. Many areas end the day with a half foot of snow. Here's what to expect overnight. pic.twitter.com/0v7wiGRFVj— WDBJ7 Weather (@WDBJ7Weather) January 17, 2022
OVERNIGHT UPDATE: The storm has pulled away but there is still a little more snow on the backside of the system keeping snow showers around the NRV and Highlands. Once the snow let up, road crews were able to make progress on the main and secondary roads, however, there are still plenty of slick conditions. Check the latest road closures and VDOT cameras.
With overnight temperatures in the 20s, road conditions will be terrible in the morning once again, although nothing new is expected to be falling Monday. Skies remain cloudy with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s.

An overnight freeze can be expected each night through the week, turning any melted snow on the roads and sidewalks back into ice.
We’ll stay dry to start the week, but but strong cold front may bring scattered rain showers late Wednesday and perhaps ending as snow showers Wednesday night. Temperatures plummet behind the front Thursday and Friday. We will also need to keep a close watch of any developing storms as temperatures remain cold through next week.
