This storm will be weaker and not have as much moisture to work with, so we feel confident the snowfall amounts will be less than the last system.

A few inches of accumulation are possible with the highest amounts expected to be north and west of RVA.

We’ve lowered forecast accumulation numbers for areas south and east of Richmond to a coating to 1 inch. These areas will get mainly some light rain.
