Special Statement
Issued: 9:47 PM EST Jan. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Strong winter storm impacting the Ohio Valley through tonight...

A strong low pressure system will track across West Virginia
tonight. On the backside of the low, an Arctic airmass will
spread into the Ohio Valley. As temperatures fall below freezing,
mixed precipitation is changing over to snow. Periods of heavy
snow will be possible. It will also be very windy with northwest
winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts up to 45 mph. This will lead to
near blizzard conditions, with visibilities near zero at times.

Travel conditions will quickly deteriorate, becoming hazardous
and potentially dangerous. Flash freezing will be possible on some
roads, with blowing and drifting snow causing brief whiteout
conditions. The wind and snow will also likely cause some falling
trees limbs and possible power outages.

Snow is expected to diminish in coverage and intensity toward
daybreak Sunday. Wind chills will fall into the zero to 10 below
range late tonight into Sunday morning.

Try to avoid going outdoors tonight through early Sunday morning
due to bitterly cold temperatures and hazardous Road conditions.
