No major changes to our snowfall totals map since last night. We still anticipate that snow will move in by mid-afternoon (4 - 7 PM metro Richmond) and will continue into the overnight hours.
- In the PINK ZONE (Charlottesville, western Louisa, Fluvanna, and Buckingham counties), you'll find the highest totals because we anticipate mainly SNOW through the duration of the event in these areas.
- In the YELLOW ZONE (Fredericksburg, through Louisa, Powhatan, and western Amelia counties), we are forecasting 6-10 inches of snowfall, STARTING as HEAVY SNOW, and then changing to SLEET.
- In the WHITE ZONE (Tappahannock, Richmond, Petersburg, through South Hill), we are forecasting 3-6 inches of snowfall, STARTING as HEAVY SNOW, then transitioning to FREEZING RAIN.
- In the BLUE ZONE (Williamsburg, Wakefield, through Sussez, and Greensville counties), we are forecasting 1-3 inches of snowfall, STARTING as HEAVY SNOW, with a QUICK transition to rain.
The main hazards with this event remain slick roads and the potential for power outages.
