The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Greater Augusta area that will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday.

Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet are possible from the storm, with an additional coating of ice from freezing rain also possible.

The storm is expected to hit the area between 1-3 a.m. Thursday morning.

Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing late Thursday morning.

The Virginia Department of Transportation reported Wednesday that it has crews out pre-treating roads with anti-icing solution on the interstate system throughout the Shenandoah Valley and on primary roads in portions of Augusta, Shenandoah, Frederick, Warren, Clarke and Page counties.

Motorists are reminded that ice and freezing rain conditions can still produce hazardous driving conditions, even when roads are treated. People should not drive unless absolutely necessary.
