NWS: Storm To Bring Snow To Parts Of South

Published February 19, 2012 4:27AM (EST)

ATLANTA (AP) — Forecasters say wintry weather will be bringing snow to parts of the Southeast this holiday weekend after what has so far been a mild season.

The National Weather Service said the storm will begin as rain Saturday night and turn into snow Sunday morning and continuing into the night. The weather service was predicting four to eight inches of snow in parts of Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina. Light snow was expected in the Washington, D.C. area.

The storm is the product of a low pressure system moving northeast across the Gulf Coast states as well as cold air from the North.

The storm could produce slick travel conditions, especially in high-elevation areas such as the Appalachians, later Sunday. It is expected to move off the Mid-Atlantic coast on Sunday night.
