A BAND OF RAIN AND SNOW IS MOVING ACROSS BUCHANAN AND DICKENSON  
VA COUNTIES AND SOUTHERN WV COUNTIES WITH REPORTS OF SLICK SPOTS  
ON ROADWAYS. WITH THE MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW FALLING EXPECT SLIPPERY  
AREAS ON UNTREATED ROADS AND SIDEWALKS MORE CONFINED TO THE  
HIGHEST ELEVATIONS AND RIDGE TOPS. IN ADDITION, AREAS OF HEAVIER  
FALLING SNOW WILL LEAD TO REDUCED VISIBILITY ALONG WITH A POSSIBLE  
LIGHT COATING OF SNOW ON THE ROADWAY.  
 
PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION, ESPECIALLY ON BRIDGES, OVERPASSES AND  
AROUND CURVES. ALLOW PLENTY OF STOPPING DISTANCE AND AVOID  
BRAKING SUDDENLY. CONDITIONS CAN DETERIORATE RAPIDLY IN WINTER  
WEATHER SITUATIONS. BE PREPARED FOR SNOW OR ICE COVERED ROADS.
