Light snow is falling across the area now, but for a few hours during the overnight hours, precipitation changed from snow to sleet and even a little freezing drizzle for folks in Richmond and areas south. These were very tiny ice pellets, so you probably won’t even be able to distinguish them in all the snow.
Where this sleet occurred, snow totals will be lower than in areas that saw all snow. However, this will make roads even more treacherous, as a coating of ice is hard to drive on and tougher for plows to clear.
The storm is in the process of winding down from west to east across the area. A little more light snow will add slightly to our totals, but we're almost at the end of it. All precipitation should clear the area by mid-morning
Please be aware that roads are snow covered, even on main roads where plows have been at work all night. Travel should be avoided through the morning hours. Perfect time to go out and play in the snow or stay warm inside with a cup of coffee!
