Snow continues to fall across most of Central Virginia at this hour. Wrecks are starting to occur in portions of the area as well. Mainly north and east of Nelson at this time, but roads are slowly becoming slick. Let’s be careful out there!
Here’s what it looked on I-64 at Afton Mountain Exit 99 from the VDOT camera there, via Trafficland just after 10AM.
