Spring Snow for Some

Posted:

Update 11 PM:

All areas have changed from snow to mainly rain or a mix of sleet and rain. Showers, mixed with isolated sleet pockets, will stick around through much of the night, tapering off into Friday. After morning clouds and a quick passing shower in spots to start out the day, clearing skies Friday afternoon will lead to highs near 60.

Update 8 PM:

Those areas still seeing snow will continue to transition over to rain or a rain and sleet mix through 9PM. However, the damage has already been done in spots where 4-6" of snow fell through parts of the New River Valley, making for very slick roads. A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for these areas through midnight.

Showers will stick around for much of the night, tapering off into Friday. After morning clouds and a quick passing shower in spots to start out the day, clearing skies Friday afternoon will lead to highs near 60.

The weekend still looks dry and milder with highs in the 60s to near 70. Saturday will be the sunnier of the two days.

Warm into early next week, with temperatures consistently in the 70s Monday-Thursday. A cold front looks to bring our next chance of rain, and maybe even storms, next Thursday. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the area, including Lynchburg, Danville, and Martinsville. The advisory is in effect until 8:00 p.m. Thursday.

Some snow and sleet is already coming down in the New River Valley and down through Henry County. The snow is heavy at times and could cause slick conditions on roads.

Stay tuned to ABC 13 for the latest forecast.
