A final update before calling it a night! Read about the afternoon models and what they say and what we're seeing in the Valley Friday evening.

6:00 pm Update:

Many areas continue to see moderate snow Friday evening with the heaviest snow still to come. Thus far the snow hasn't been too heavy but we have to wait for the coastal low to bring in some more energy. We're looking for the heaviest snow overnight and into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Afternoon models still give us about 2" of liquid from this storm, on top of what had already fallen by 1pm Friday afternoon. We're seeing some sleet mixing in with the snow in Augusta County, which is something we were concerned about in the days leading up to this storm. Sleet mixing in with the snowfall may lessen snowfall amounts. Other viewers commented on the snow not sticking in the northern Valley as temperatures remained above freezing.

Colder air will move into the Valley as the coastal low draws in cooler air from the north. Until then, temperatures remain marginal.

Lighter snow will fall through Saturday morning, with a few bands of moderate snow moving through the Valley before the storm moves out to sea.

Until tomorrow morning - be safe!!
