Just went out because I thought the heavier rates were coming, but it flipped to a snow/sleet/rain mix.  I'm in Midlothian.  Not a good sign.  Was 30 degrees.

hopefully when these heavier rates hit you that will change it back over again.. if not .. that's not a good sign for the area..

That would be nice, but I am thinking this is going to be a sleet fest. That's okay though. So much better than freezing rain! I like having power without running a generator. We got next weekend and it will be here soon enough. That is the storm I will be watching. And right now, I am liking how it looks. BTW, I am northern PG, just 25 miles from RIC.

The totals include sleet, which is what it is mainly showing for RIC for most of the run. That is once we get passed the next few hours of snow. 

The Kuchera maps are good too

Maybe the totals go up if we get that last piece of energy coming through tomorrow night. But right now, areas around the metro are flipping to a mixed mess. And that is mostly what the HRRR simulated radar shows as well.

Could be a situation where someone in RVA north and west of 95 gets mostly snow and 2 miles SE all sleet.

I personally think you are going to have to be in areas like Louisa, Powhatan, Goochland to stay all snow. Those areas favor all snow more than RIC in these type of systems.

Higher rates can mean a flip to sleet may happen soon. Would be nice if you could stay snow. Would make my daughter happy. She and the hubby lives in the Glenn Allen area.  At least for now. They are moving to NOVA next month in the Gainesville area.

yep I know... pouring down snow now... more snow has accumulated here in the last 10 mins then we had here  all night .. deck finally officially covered....   guess it will flip in the next 10 mins.. ha (hopefully it was just because of the good rates moving in)  

looks like its still snowing at VCU so that's good

Nice choice in Gainesville.  Been here 20 years.  Grown a lot and we often do better with snow compared to Glen Allen.  Except December of 2018 of course.

Heavy snow in Glen Allen. Just took a walk in it. 5 minutes and my entire jacket covered in snow. Greatly annoying in my face. Lol. Everything covered now.

Just took a peak at radar and that mix line is pushing north right up 95 through RIC. Hope we can at least maintain sleet and not flip to rain/Fz rain. Holding steady at 31. But I think my area will go over to rain sometime tomorrow. Then maybe a shot at all snow again in the PM.

LOOKS like we are looked into this for at least through the early after hours.. will be interesting to see how far the plain rain makes it

Didn't even get my crusty inch....I would call it a healthy dusting. :thumbsdown: Rain.  Euro pretty consistent with showing us getting in on the wrap around action later today into the evening.  6z snow map shows 2 inches at RIC between 7 and 10 PM.  Doubt that will be the ground truth but at least more wintry than my current downpour :arrowhead:

In West End of the city we got maybe an inch of snow, followed by sleet, followed by pouring rain at 32. Branches are fairly well iced up but thankfully, knock on wood, no outages. Hoping for maybe some pity back side snow here in next few hours. Been sitting at 32 for majority of storm

 I was at Laburnum/Williamsburg Rd. around Noon today and there was some snow/sleet on the ground, so the airport should have recorded something I would imagine...

lost power here for about a 1/2 hour here in Glen Allen.  Sleet just picked back up also..

Surprised no talk of a flash freeze tonight from the local stations and more pos power outages.
