A moist air mass and a light upslope east to northeast flow in place across the region again this morning has promoted the development of widespread low cloud cover across much of the region, especially along and west of the Blue Ridge. Consequently, across the higher elevations of the mountains, especially for elevations at or above 2500 ft., the clouds are low enough to intersect the ground. Thus, visibilities in these areas will be severely restricted and potentially as low as 0 miles in much of the higher terrain. Some areas that would be impacted with severely reduced visibility include: Much of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Much of the Interstate 77 Corridor through Virginia and into southern West Virginia, The Interstate 81 Corridor from Marion to Christiansburg or roughly mile markers 35 to 118, Other highways and roads traversing elevations above 2500 ft. If you plan to travel through these areas early this morning, reduce speed, use low beam headlights, allow extra time to reach your destination, and leave extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. $$ RAB WWUS51 KRNK 152113 SVSRNK Severe Weather Statement National Weather Service BLACKSBURG VA 513 PM EDT Mon Aug 15 2022 VAC021-035-063-155-197-152200- /O.CON.KRNK.SV.W.0268.000000T0000Z-220815T2200Z/ Pulaski VA-Floyd VA-Bland VA-Wythe VA-Carroll VA- 513 PM EDT Mon Aug 15 2022 ...A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 600 PM EDT FOR PULASKI...WEST CENTRAL FLOYD...EAST CENTRAL BLAND...NORTHEASTERN WYTHE AND NORTHEASTERN CARROLL COUNTIES... At 513 PM EDT, a severe thunderstorm was located over Max Meadows, moving east at 25 mph. HAZARD...60 mph wind gusts and quarter size hail. SOURCE...Radar indicated.

Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid hydroplaning. When it is safe to do so, please send your reports of hail of any size, as well as reports of any wind damage, including downed trees or large limbs, to the National Weather Service by calling toll free at 1...8 6 6...2 1 5...4 3 2 4.
