As Tommy predicted in his weekend forecast, light snow began falling Sunday morning across the Central Virginia Blue Ridge. By far the greater accumulations (around an inch) fell in the higher elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive and places like Wintergreen, Montebello, and Afton Mountain.

The much bigger story for the next day or two is brutally cold temps that start settling in across the area by Sunday night. Wind Chill Advisories are already in effect for many counties nearby. Gusty winds that will develop drive wind chill readings well below zero at times.

The central part of Virginia stays below freezing until Wednesday when temps rise to the upper 30s.


Tommy says another round of wintry weather may develop by the end of the week. Listen to his forecast above.
