CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Tracking a quick hitting winter storm for the overnight! This will not be a repeat of this past Monday’s snowstorm. This storm system is weaker and faster moving. Any rain will quickly go over to wet snow late this evening. The heaviest snow looks to fall from 11 PM to 2 AM west to east. Snow accumulations look to range from 1 to 4 inches total by dawn. Most areas look to be on the lower end of the projections. 4 to 6 inches over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Snow is long gone by morning. Temperatures drop to the 10s and 20s. This will make for slick travel. If you can, hold off on any travel until later in the day. A blustery northwest wind will make it feel colder. Most communities remain at or below freezing.

Overnight lows Friday into early Saturday will dip down to the single number for many!
