CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Seasonable temperatures Friday, with sun returning, but turning breezy by afternoon. Sharply colder for the weekend. Mostly cloudy and dry Saturday, ahead of the next Winter Storm. A major Winter Storm is expected to impact a large area for the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast from Sunday into Monday.

Snow looks to start between late Sunday morning, into the afternoon. Snow, heavy at times, with several inches expected across the Shenandoah Valley and Central Virginia from Sunday afternoon into early Monday morning. The snow may mix with and change to sleet/ice Sunday night over Central Virginia. That would cut down on snow accumulations. The threat for several inches of snow and possibly some sleet for our region is high. The track and intensity of the storm near or inland of the coast, will dictate how much snow and where there will be a changeover to some ice and rain across the Mid-Atlantic. This Winter Storm will have a hazardous impact to travel and may also cause new power outages. The storm will move away from us by Monday morning and it will remain breezy. Icy conditions are likely, with some slow melting Monday afternoon. Continue to monitor the forecast for changes and updates over the next several days. Be Prepared!
