Soggy, then snowy Saturday
LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Winter refuses to exit Virginia as we’re tracking two wintry weather systems which will bring snow to the Commonwealth.
Rain moves in late Friday night and Saturday morning, and other than wet roads, no local morning problems are expected in the Lynchburg, Danville and Roanoke area.
Temperatures will drop late morning. Rain will transition to a rain/sleet and snow mix before lunch and during the afternoon.
Most roads will remain “wet” as the snow melts on contact. Accumulations in grass, plants and cars will be possible by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures near the ground will hover in the 35 to 40 range.
Temperatures will drop to 30 to 35 by Saturday night, and slick spots are possible on local roads.
The warm ground temperatures combined with the wet roads will make conditions more difficult, but not impossible for icy spots on the pavement.
Accumulations up to the 1” range are possible. Amounts could be higher if the snow doesn't melt quickly!
Snow totals will be higher west and north of Lynchburg. 1” to 3” totals are anticipated in the mountains.
All precipitation ends near midnight.
We’ll awaken to sunshine and cold, brisk conditions on Sunday morning with temperatures in the mid 20s.
An additional bout of snow will develop on Monday morning! Snow amounts in the 1” range are possible.
