Minimal Snow For D.C. Sunday

No more than an inch of snow is expected to fall on the D.C. area Sunday afternoon as a winter storm warning for parts of central and southwestern Virginia is set to go into effect.

The latest forecast from News4 meteorologist Chuck Bell calls for light rain and snow to begin falling in the D.C. area at around mid-afternoon Sunday. Total accumulation should measure less than an inch and any precipitation should end before sunrise Monday.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall in central Virginia between Richmond and Roanoke, with up to eight inches expected in some parts of the state.

Motorists are urged to use caution when traveling, though the relatively warm temperatures should prevent any accumulation on D.C.-area roads. Bell specifically suggests that any traveling motorists should avoid Interstate 81 between Winchester and Blacksburg.
