CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a soaking rainfall overnight, showers exit Sunday morning. Clouds linger along with mild temperatures for this time of year. That will change in a hurry overnight into Monday morning. Tracking a colder storm system arriving from the southwest.

Rain will turn to sleet and then heavy, wet snow late tonight into Monday morning. Accumulations will range from the low end of 2 to 3 inches, to the higher end of 4 to 6 inches. It all depends of elevation, how fast the snow can fall and the exact track on the storm system. The ground is mild so there will be melting, especially on paved surfaces. If snow can pepper down hard enough, then roads will become slick for the morning commute.

Snow exits west to east Monday midday. Some sun and melting during the afternoon.
