Very cold wind chills expected.

Expect wind chills to range from 5 above zero to 10 below zero. The advisory is for portions of southwest and west central Virginia and northwest North Carolina, from 6 PM this evening to 10 AM EST Thursday.
The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.

An upper-level disturbance and associated Arctic cold front were moving through the region this morning. In addition, low pressure across the southeast U.S. will move northeast along the front toward the Mid-Atlantic coast by Thursday morning. The combination of these weather systems will bring light snow to much of this area through the morning, with the snow ending by midday or early afternoon. Snowfall amounts are expected to be around an inch or less across these counties, with isolated two inch amounts.

Further east, mainly east of the Blue Ridge, snow is expected to be heavier and last longer as the aforementioned low pressure system moves across North Carolina later today and toward the Mid-Atlantic coast by tomorrow morning. In those areas, Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings are in effect today where snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches are possible. Heavier snow amounts will also be possible along the typical west facing slopes of the Alleghanys and into far southwest Virginia. There, the snowfall is primarily expected this morning.
