The National Weather Service's Morristown Weather Forecast Office has issued a winter weather advisory for Scott County and select other counties in the Cumberland Plateau region.
The advisory, issued for freezing rain and snow, takes effect at 11 p.m. Monday night and continues until 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.
According to the advisory, freezing rain will begin and change over to snow as temperatures drop through the night.
"Accumulations (of ice) will generally be less than one quarter of an inch, but will make travel hazardous," the NWS said in the advisory. "Precipitation may change over to snow before ending, and up to two inches of snow accumulations are possible in the northern plateau and the higher elevations of southwest Virginia."
The NWS says that bridges and overpasses will be most impacted.
The advisory also includes Campbell, Morgan and Anderson counties, in addition to Scott County. Separate NWS offices issued winter weather advisories for Fentress County and McCreary County.
In Fentress County, the NWS's Nashville office issued an advisory that will take effect at 10 p.m. and continue through 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, for up to an inch of snow, with locally higher amounts.
In McCreary County, the NWS's Jackson, Ky., office issued an advisory that will take effect at midnight and continue until 2 p.m. Tuesday, for two-to-three inches of snow and up to four inches in localized areas.
