The winter storm is making its way through Central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley.

The central and southern parts of the Shenandoah Valley have seen the most snowfall so far, but more snow is in the forecast.

In Waynesboro, drivers faced slushy roads along Rosser Avenue on their morning commute. Staunton already received three to four inches of snow and are currently preparing for more. 

"Enjoy it while we have it we may end up getting winters in the future years without snow so that just wouldn’t seem right," said John Spahr, a resident in Staunton.  

Sparh adds that crews in Staunton have done a great job clearing the roads, but he's still concerned about what the weather the rest night and early morning may bring to drivers. 

Virginia Department of Transportation crews say they will continue to plow and treat roads on continuous twelve hour shifts. 

VDOT is also warning drivers to be careful on the roads tonight and into tomorrow morning. Temperatures are expected to drop, which could cause water on the roads to freeze.
