Episode Narrative An area of low pressure moved from the Mississippi coast to off the Carolina coast. At the same time another low moved through the Ohio Valley, putting southwest Virginia in the middle of the two. An area of mixed precipitation moved across the area with light to moderate accumulations. The coastal low deepened on Wednesday bringing strong damaging winds and significant upslope snow showers to the higher elevations of southwest Virginia.
Event Narrative A mixed bag of wintry precipitation moved into the county early on the 9th, producing light accumulations. On the 10th cold air moved in with strong northwest winds. Significant upslope snow showers developed with near blizzard conditions at times. The western slopes of the mountains saw the highest total accumulations with up to 10 inches in Sugar Grove and 6 inches in Marion. Further west near Saltville, there was little upslope snows, and thus only near 3 inches fell.
