COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A winter storm watch has been issued for all of the WTVM coverage area in anticipation of snow and ice that will affect the area Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

Storm Team 9 is monitoring the situation closely and will have the latest forecast updates on the television side of things throughout the day and night.

There is a possibility of a strip of heavier snow across portions of the Chattahoochee Valley along and on either side of a line from Tuskegee to Phenix City/Columbus to Butler.  Here, over 2 inches of snow are possible (with some spots picking up over 4 inches), with a possibility of some accumulation of sleet as well.  The farther south and east that you travel for there, the great the chance for ice accumulation.

It has been awhile since a majority of the area has seen an accumulating snow event - February of 2010 was the last time for most of us.  Keep in mind that any snow or ice accumulation can cause travel problems in the local area.  WTVM will keep you up to date with the latest school closings and delays, along with any business or road closures.

In the meantime, the amounts of snow and ice are subject to change as we get closer to the event.  It will be important to stay tuned for updates on this changing weather situation.  Below are some links on how you can stay informed:

* On the weather tab at WTVM.com

* By downloading our mobile weather app

* By signing up for breaking news and weather emails and text alerts

* On the WTVM Weather Facebook page

* By following WTVM Weather on Twitter
