I measured 8″ at my house in Richmond before I left to come in at 1:30am. It was sleeting at my house then. After a SLOW drive in, I’m here in the wx office, gearing up for a very busy day. Roads are horrible! Stay put and enjoy the snow if possible…
Keep the totals/observations coming. We appreciate it.
Aside from North and West of town, the storm is taking a break for a bit. Sleet and rain mixed with snow will fall in Richmond (especially South and East) through sunrise or later.
But during the morning hours, cold air wins out and snow will take over, even as far east as Virginia Beach by This afternoon.
*update: dry air is sneaking into the storm. we could see 4″ in town but that’s looking less likely…
That will bring storm totals to a foot or more in many spots! Winds will pick up today, which could bring power outages.
