…Temperatures falling this morning…

A strong cold front was crossing from west to east through 
southeast West Virginia, southwest Virgina and northwest North 
Carolina this morning. Behind the front temperatures will quickly
drop into the lower to mid 30s. This may cause icing and slick
spots where roads and sidewalks are still wet from the rain

Use caution when traveling later this morning and into this 
afternoon. Temperatures will be below freezing and untreated 
surfaces may be slippery. 

In addition, winds will increase from the northwest behind the
front with gusts from 25 to 45 mph. By the afternoon wind chill 
values will be in the single digits and teens.
