RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - This morning, northern and northwestern Virginia received the highest snowfall accumulations up to 5 inches (mainly in the higher terrain). The rest of central Virginia received a soaking cold rain Tuesday morning. Richmond picked up about a quarter-inch of rainfall this morning.

Drier air is surging into Virginia mid-day, ending our precipitation from west to east quickly this afternoon. I only expect scattered light rain and snow flurries through 3 p.m.
