  • North Carolina governor urges residents to get prepare for storm

We don't expect any major storms to impact our weather over the next 5 days. DC surburbs could also see some snow.

The greater Richmond area and parts west - including Charlottesville, Staunton, Lynchburg, Roanoke, Farmville, and Blacksburg, are under a Winter Storm Warning until 4 a.m. Monday morning.

Snow totals will be lower in northeastern Arkansas and northwestern Tennessee, where a trace to 1 inch of snow is possible.

A winter storm dropped more than an inch of snow on the William & Mary campus Sunday.

A winter storm warning by the National Weather Service will remain in effect until 2 p.m.

"She seems to like it, " he said, holding a walking stick for extra traction. "Some areas may have issues with the roads, but the D.C. metro area escaped by the skin of our teeth".

Wilson County Schools and Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools made the announcement Sunday that schools would be closed for students and staff on Monday due to hazardous road conditions. Skies should be mostly cloudy, according to the weather service.

Governors and local officials declared emergencies ahead of the storm crossing several Southern states, which hit portions of North Carolina and Virginia particularly hard.




Further north, it was ice and snow. "This weekend isn't the time to head out to see the winter wonderland".

"This is going to be a snowstorm, not a snowfall", Gov. Roy Cooper said at a press conference Saturday. "Getting out on unsafe roads could put your life at risk".

In South Carolina, snow gave way to sleet and rain as temperatures hovered around freezing, the South Carolina Emergency Management Division said on Twitter.

And just like in North Carolina, roads are still unsafe in Virginia.

More snow was forecast through Sunday afternoon and into the evening.

Virginia State Police reported almost 60 crashes in Virginia because of the snow, with most crashes in the agency's Richmond division.

State police said it's important to keep streets clear so Department of Transportation workers can access roads. Forecasters have said some mountain areas of North Carolina could get up to 12 inches (30 centimetres) of snow or more. SC and Virginia, along with parts of Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee, also saw outages.

Maryland State Police in the southern part of the state have activated a snow emergency plan. Another 300 cancellations were expected for Monday.

Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. Monday night's low is expected to plunge to 26 degrees, meaning potentially risky driving conditions again Tuesday morning.
