Our CBS 6 SkyTracker cams show the first round of snow blowing through.

Carrie Rose February 13, 201412:40 pm

Another round of lighter snowfall is likely this afternoon as an upper-level low pressure system tracks over North Carolina and Virginia. We expect 1″ to 2″ of additional snowfall (some isolated spots in heavier snow bursts could see closer to 3″ of wet snowfall). Temperatures will be above freezing while this snow falls, so treated roads should remain slushy.

Please clear the snow and ice off your car BEFORE leaving home this morning.

Carrie Rose February 13, 20145:41 am

Winds are gusting 15 to 30 mph at times from a northerly direction. This will increase the risk for power outages as tree limbs and power lines become weighed down with ice accretion.

VDOT says crews have begun full preparations for the significant winter weather expected to impact the commonwealth today and tomorrow.

Anti-icing operations have been conducted on major roads across the state, which started yesterday and continued through this morning.

Salt and brine help to melt ice and snow, creating greater friction on road surfaces.

I know we’re talking a lot about the snowfall accumulations, because that’s what will fall first. But there will also be the potential for significant ice accumulation overnight into Thursday morning! This would lead to a HIGH RISK of power outages from weighed down power lines and snapping trees. PREPARE NOW for power outages.
