Central VA Sees Varied Winter Weather

Posted: Updated:

Winter weather conditions vary throughout central Virginia Thursday night.

Zion Crossroads was hit a little harder than some other areas, but warm road temperatures kept the snow from sticking Thursday evening.

No significant accumulations occurred in Charlottesville. Road conditions were wet but traffic was moving smoothly, even on major roads such as Route 29.

Afton Mountain saw accumulations of about two inches. Those roads are dangerous because they typically freeze more quickly due to their high elevation.

Virginia Department of Transportation crews worked throughout Thursday to keep the roads safe, arriving at 8 a.m. to begin 24-hour shifts. Because of the rain, they were not able to pre-treat roadways. They were, however, pre-positioned along major roadways to take action once the first snowflake fell.

Fluvanna, Louisa and Buckingham were some of the hardest hit areas Thursday.

Watch the video above to see conditions on Route 29, in Charlottesville, on Afton Mountain, and other locations throughout central Virginia on Thursday.
