Nelson County, Virginia
As we have been forecasting for the past several days, a major snowstorm started around daylight Friday and is expected to continue until Saturday night when the snow will finally end from west to east.

To make matters worse, winds are expected to pick up after midnight Friday into Saturday, blowing the heavy wet snow and increasing the likelihood of power outages across the region. As of 11:30 AM Friday morning, CVEC had no outages reported and all circuits were functioning normally. [2]

Roads have become slick and hazardous all across Nelson and the surrounding area with several accidents already being worked just before the noon hour.

Look for snow to increase in intensity throughout the afternoon into tonight, with continued heavy snowfall.
