Nelson County, Virginia
For the second time in just a little over a month Nelson County and much of Virginia has been slammed again with a significant snowfall. As of 1PM Saturday, a Winter Storm Warning continued and heavy snow was falling all across the area.
Roads conditions across the area are described as slick and hazardous with snow pack on all roads. VDOT is plowing highways and interstates, but continued heavy snow makes it difficult to stay clear. Cheryl Tompkins, owner of Stoney Creek Pharmacy in Nellysford, told us around 1PM I-64 was in decent shape toward Waynesboro, but in Waynesboro proper roads were a mess.
The snow is expected to continue throughout the afternoon , but will begin tapering off as we approach dusk. Light snow may fall in the early evening hours before ending altogether. Sunday will be sunny, but cold with highs in the mid 30’s valley and upper 30’s on the mountains.
