Nelson County, Virginia

Kids haven’t even been trick or treating yet, but that didn’t stop winter from making an early appearance in Nelson County, Virginia overnight Friday into Saturday. Around 3 inches of snow had fallen by daylight up in the mountains at places like Wintergreen, Montebello, Love and other areas along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Paul captured this shot out the window of the Copper Mine Restaurant Saturday morning at Wintergreen Resort. He estimates around 2-3 inches of total snowfall fell.

The mums may think it's still October, but Mother Nature says otherwise!

By and large there have been no major road problems in Nelson County, but to our west along I-81 & 64 more significant travel problems have been encountered.

Image via VDOT 511 Cameras : Along I-64 on the west side of Afton Mountain snow covered the grassy areas and medians, but the interstate was okay around 11:30 AM Saturday morning.

The previously issued Winter Storm Warning for Nelson has been canceled. But a Freeze Warning is in effect for the Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
