Winter Weather Statement
Statement as of 10:07 PM EST on December 07, 2011

…Winter Weather Advisory is cancelled…

The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington has
cancelled the Winter Weather Advisory.

Little to no additional accumulation is expected.

Wintergreen & Nelson County, Virginia
A wide variety of weather is being thrown at Nelson County over the next 18-24 hours. During the day Wednesday heavy rains affected the area. As of Wednesday evening some flood warnings were already active with some Nelson roads affected. You can always see the currently active watches or warnings just to your right under Nelson Weather Bulletins.

Overnight Wednesday possible snow will be the concern as much colder air begins working into the area. The most likely locations to receive notable accumulation will be at Wintergreen, Love, Montebello, Afton (higher elevations) and areas along the western facing slopes of the BRP. However, if the cold air arrives quickly enough before the moisture moves out, the valley portions down below in Nelson could see an inch or so. Timing is key here. Warm temps over the past several days have ground temps well above freezing. But, much colder air will begin arriving Wednesday afternoon possible allowing for accumulating snow overnight.

Here's the latest snowfall map created by Meteorologist Travis Koshko at our news partner station CBS-19 in Charlottesville. If enough cold air arrives in time those amounts may be nudged upwards, particularly in the higher elevations of Nelson County.

Tommy will be providing updated audio as needed in his weathercast here.
