Weekend Brings Snow, Frigid Weather To Virginia

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Much of Virginia is bracing for low temperatures and snowfall heading into the weekend.
    
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of Virginia into Friday evening and early Saturday.
    
Virginia Department of Transportation says crews are working around the clock to treat and clear state-maintained roads.
    
Virginia State Police say troopers responded to nearly 250 traffic crashes and about 175 disabled vehicles through Friday evening.
    
Media outlets report that the forecast calls for 1 to 2 inches of snow in the Richmond metro area. Southside and southeastern Virginia could get 2 to 3 inches and snowfall totals are estimated in western and Southwest Virginia to be between 1 to 4 inches. The snow is expected to accumulate on all surfaces as temperatures remain below freezing.
