Central Virginia Blue Ridge
As Tommy’s been discussing over the past several days, a Thanksgiving Eve winter storm began hitting the Blue Ridge area around daylight Wednesday. Down below the temperatures have primarily been too warm for snow coverage in the immediate area. But up top at Wintergreen and along the Blue Ridge Parkway, plenty of snow has been falling all morning.

If you travel away from Nelson where we are based, interstates have become problematic in many areas.
