The first Snow of the season for the M/A States will bring significant snowfall tonight into Saturday. A stalled out front now just of the Eastern seaboard will allow an area of low pressure to move northeast up and along the East coast tonight and Saturday. Snow will begin later this afternoon over SW and Southern VA and expand northeast into Central and northern VA during this evening.

Wet Snow will continue light to moderate overnight into Saturday. Temperature will be marginal ranging from 30 F to 34 F degrees during the event and reach the mid to upper 30’s during Saturday afternoon. All treated roads should be mainly wet, with untreated back roads, mainly slushy and snow covered, later tonight into early Saturday.
