Nelson County
And All of Central Virginia

As of noon Friday, all of the elements appear to be on track for a significant winter weather event over a part of the upcoming President’s Day weekend that extened through Monday. Numerous private weather services such as Accuweather.com and, closer to home, WxRisk.com based here in Virginia have been talking about the potential for this storm over the past several days. Forecasters at the NWS are beginning to make mention of this in their area forecast discussions, but not much else currently. Look for that to change dramatically in the coming hours.

So how much snow are we talking about? Given current information, 5+ inches of snow Sunday night into Monday morning is not out of the question for Nelson proper. I have been consulting with Chief Meteorologist Travis Koshko over at our News Partner CBS-19 in Charlottesville Friday morning. Travis released his first estimate map today at noon. (See above)

Stay tuned, as this is very fluid at the moment, but again, it does appear to be a significant winter weather event, particularly as we are getting near the end of the real winter season in our area.

This post will be updated throughout the day so be sure to check it often, and we will feed those updates to our Facebook and Twitter feeds as well.
