Some parts of Virginia will see snow Wednesday

A storm system will move east into the Mid-Atlantic today, bringing snow to west-central and far north-central Virginia. Accumulations from this afternoon into early evening should be light in the 1"-3" range, but this will make travel hazardous during the Wednesday evening commute as moderate snow falls and accumulates on roads.

Locations just southeast of the Advisory may also see some snow mixing in with rain showers today, but no significant accumulations will occur as temperatures remain above freezing there. The best snow accumulations will be along ridge-tops and at higher elevations.

Overnight as the storm system moves offshore into the Atlantic and colder air wraps around the backside into Virginia, there may be a few lingering flurries in central Virginia that will not lead to any accumulation.
