Spring What?

What first full day of Spring? Rain transitioned to snow late last night and continues over all of western Virginia this afternoon before tapering off overnight. When it's all said and done accumulations tally in the 1"-4" range for locations such as Independence and Hillsville. Further west towards Wytheville and the higher ridges, snowfall totals are more like 4"-7". For details about snow accumulations, see our Welcome to Spring Snow Totals graphic. Today and Thursday are quite windy, but the sun returns tomorrow. For those needing a warm-up you will have to wait until a week from now. In fact, another good snow may become reality this weekend.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. You can submit photos now til March, 26. We wanted to keep the momentum going from this year's calendar. So, we'll start now and have calendars on store shelves sooner than ever before.

Forecast Discussion

The hits keep on coming! As two areas of low pressure consolidate up the East Coast today snow flies from the TN Valley to the tip of Maine (and beyond). Snow showers taper off tonight leaving a broad swath of moderate snow through all of western Virginia. This would be more fun if it weren't late March and the wind wasn't as bad.

Thursday and Friday provide a chilly respite as high pressure builds through the region. However, Thursday is still blustery, just brighter and not as cold as today.

This weekend an area of low pressure moves from Missouri (Saturday) to the Carolinas coast Sunday. Clouds increase Friday night and light rain or a wintry mix develops Saturday, mainly in the afternoon. As it turns colder Saturday night we'll transition to all snow ending Sunday late morning or midday. Surface temperatures will make this one a close-call and it could end up being a higher elevation deal, but another widespread plowable snow event for western Virginia is very doable. It's not a bad idea to start wrapping your brain around that now.

Temperatures slowly moderate the first half of next week. Monday remains seasonably cold as a chilly wedge of high pressure builds into the Appalachians. Finally we'll start to break free Tuesday and get into more legitimate spring warmth Wednesday and beyond.
