Estimated snowfall for Wednesday via Accuweather.com
Darker purple = 1-2 inches
Lighter purple = 3+ inches
We’re going to skip the weather photo for Wednesday and get right into the forecast. As we first posted Tuesday afternoon. A SNOW ADVISORY has been issued for all of the area beginning at 8 AM Wednesday morning. Forecasters are analyzing the models at this time, but it appears Nelson will get some snow, obviously better chances in the mountains at Wintergreen and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is some question as to the eastern part of Nelson east of 29 where we may see a rain snow mix on Wednesday.
A clipper system can be tough to predict, and that 2-3 inches could be nothing at all. However, it appears right now many of the elements are in play to have at least a nice light to moderate snow in the area by Wednesday evening.
Our Mountain Photographer, Christina Kline, told us they have been making the fool out of snow on the mountain and the approaching system will just add to that!
By Friday, look for a slight shot at sprinkles. By next week temps will warm to near 60 degrees.
