Ice Storm Bears Down On Virginia

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Weather officials say an ice storm is imminent throughout much of Virginia.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for at least 28 counties in southwestern, central and Southside Virginia from early Sunday through Monday morning.

Accumulations of up to an inch of snow and sleet are likely through Sunday afternoon, followed by up to a half inch of ice through Monday morning.

The weather service says ice could topple trees and power lines, and roads could become slick and hazardous.

Other areas of the state, especially northern sections, could see up to 3 inches of snow before changing to freezing rain on Sunday night and rain on Monday morning.
