Sunday’s winter storm could bring some most snow in nearly three years

Your Local Weather Authority has been tracking a winter storm that’s heading towards Southwest and Central Virginia this weekend with a bulk of the precipitation expected to hit Sunday into early Monday.

If you’re a snow lover, you’re in luck! A good portion of our area can expect to become a winter wonderland.

Southwest Virginia, including the New River Valley, the Roanoke Valley and the Alleghany Highlands may see anything from 7 inches to a whopping 13 inches of snow and sleet.

Central Virginia and Southside see anywhere as little as 1 inches (in the South Boston area) to as much as 8 inches of snow (spanning from the Lynchburg area towards Martinsville).

WSLS 10 Meteorologist Chris Michaels said that any additional snow Monday will mostly target the west slopes, but snow showers do have the chance to make it farther east of that.

Most importantly, be sure to bundle up if you’re going out! It will be windy at times and very cold.

Winter Threats

Our last winter storm saw significant power outages, and it’s possible that we see that Sunday into Monday.

Messy roads are highly likely this weekend as well. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: If you don’t need to be on the road, stay home!
