A winter storm reached the Burlington area Wednesday morning and is expected to bring heavy snow accumulations throughout the day.

FOX44 Meteorologist Steve Glazier says the radar showed snow moving in Wednesday morning. Glazier says that will intensify throughout the day.

Northern parts of the region could see 12-20”, while southern parts could see sleet and freezing rain, cutting down on snow totals. But, not enough to prevent a 6-12" snow/sleet accumulation with up to 0.25" of ice. 

The storm is also expected to bring heavy winds, gusting anywhere from 35 to 45 mph.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of our area. It is set to expire at 8 p.m. Thursday.
