UK snow Netweather forecast

There could be spotty rain or snow showers through the day, with temperatures well below average in the 30s.

Karen Hepp is in Bucks County where some areas could see up to a foot of snow or more once the sleet turns over to snowflakes. Late Wednesday into early Thursday morning the sky will begin to clear and we will only have a few lingering flurries.

Long range forecasts state there will be an increased likelihood of overnight frosts and a greater than normal chance of snow, especially in the north.

It's too early to tell if the frozen precipitation will materialize in the Piedmont Triad, though it appears the chance for snow is more certain this weekend for the High Country and northern mountains.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for most of our region until 8 p.m, but it continues until 11 p.m. or midnight for portions of Virginia and West Virginia. Have chose to let the Winter Storm Watch continue for now as it's looking more likely that snow levels will remain high into Thursday. An accumulation of 2 to 4 inches is possible, though snowfall should stop by Wednesday evening. In 1983, more than an inch of snow fell on April 18, and the record for the month is 10 inches on April 3, 1915.

Wednesday night's low is to drop into the mid-30s, according to the National Weather Service office in Valley.

Expect to see plenty of melting on Thursday with partly cloudy skies and a warmer (but still unseasonably chilly) high near 50 degrees. Winds will be out of the west at 10-15 miles per hour and could be breezy at times. The storm started overnight Monday and is set to last until Wednesday afternoon.

We will be cool and drier Thursday and Friday, before rain/snow showers move in for this weekend.
