CLICK HERE to see the latest watches, warnings, and advisories for Virginia.  A winter storm warning is in effect for the western half of the state, and a winter weather advisory is in effect for the I-95 corridor and the Richmond metro area.

Nick Dutton December 8, 20135:22 am

5 A.M. UPDATE FROM VDOT: Crews have pretreated I-95 north of the James River, I-295, I-64 and Routes 288 and 195 (Downtown Expressway) with a salt and water brine solution, which will prevent any frozen precipitation from bonding with the pavement.

Additional crews have been on standby since midnight awaiting deployment if pavement temperatures are at or below freezing once precipitation falls.

Once wintry weather begins and the brine solution dissipates, crews will apply salt to interstates to melt any frozen precipitation and sand to secondary roads to provide traction.

VDOT recommends that drivers wait until later this afternoon to travel.

    its raining.and its to warm for anything but maybe a little ice.Desperate wtvr weather people at it again.their like the weather team that yelled wolf

  • jrcat7

    I suspect it is big business. I’ve read that The Weather Channel’s viewership goes up about 300% during hurricane/tornado events. I see Ch 6 usually with the biggest headlines touting storms a week away. Can’t remember the last time it was as bad as ch 6 actually predicted but it’s been a looooong time.
