Central Virginia Blue Ridge
Nelson County, Virginia
By Tommy Stafford
A bit of a surprise snow began falling Sunday evening around 6 PM in many areas close to the Blue Ridge and points east. Forecasts called for just a plain old cold rain, but just enough cold air worked in for the rain to change to snow.

64 is a mess. Passed 5 wrecks between Zion Crossroads and Charlottesville. Cars in the trees and in ditches. If you don’t need to be on the roads tonight, probably a good idea to stay home. Multiple wrecks on town too. @CBS19Weather

SOUND UP: You can hear the sleet hitting the pavement in Nelson County, VA earlier today.

As temperatures rise above freezing through the morning and the rest of the day all of the snow and sleet is expected to melt quickly. Most of the coming week is seasonal with mild daytime temps and freezing temps in the upper 20s and lower 30s at night. Rain is back in the forecast by the end of the week.
