RICHMOND, Va. -- Snow will begin to wind down this afternoon. A few inches have already fallen in many locations.

Temperatures will fall into the 20s today then, the upper teens tonight. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for nearly all of the Piedmont and Tidewater as an upper-level storm system moves through the area today.

A broad area of the Commonwealth will receive between 1" and 3" of snow, with 2" to 4" inches and locally higher totals across south central Virginia. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of the Western Piedmont and Southside.

We’ll see a gradual warming trend Thursday through the weekend, with upper 50s and low 60s for highs on Sunday. The period Thursday through Sunday will be dry, but rain will become likely late Monday into Tuesday.
