Lots of you in the Greater RVA Metro Area seeing flurries and light snow showers right now. This is because of upper-level energy swinging over the Mid-Atlantic aloft.
I’m watching a pretty snow fall on the Randolph-Macon College Skytracker Camera!
Upper-level energy is beginning to swing over west-central VA now, which is allowing light snow to fall to our west (I can see the snow on VDOT cameras reaching the ground on I-64 at the Gordonsville Exit, for example, confirming the radar trend of the past 30 minutes). Our best window for light snow showers in the Greater RVA Metro Area, therefore, looks to me like it will happen between 8:30AM-Noon.
Most of the snow this morning has been in the Winter Weather Advisory area north of the RVA Metro. Total accumulations there look like they’ll range 1″-2″ by the time this wraps up around Noon.
