There were light flurries around the metro area Monday, but further south, a winter weather advisory was issued.
By midmorning, a narrow band from Charlottesville to the northern neck of Virginia was dropping accumulating snow in central Virginia. Some areas saw 4-6 inches of accumulation, with 10 inches reported in Orange County.
In Spotsylvania, Orange, and Albermarle counties, a National Weather Service winter storm warning expired at 1 p.m. A winter weather advisory was issued for Stafford and Culpeper counties and southern Maryland around the northern neck.
The snow was followed by cold air that could make Monday night the coldest in about three weeks, Storm4 meteorologist Doug Kammerer reported. Expect highs in the upper 40s Tuesday, but the highs should climb back into the 60s Wednesday and Thursday.
