LYNCHBURG DISTRICT: DIFFICULT TRAVEL LIKELY THROUGH EARLY MONDAY
LYNCHBURG- (11 am) – While Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews across the Lynchburg District are seeing wet or snow-covered roads at this time, conditions may worsen before they get better.
Snow accumulations today may range from less than one inch in the southern part of the district to as much as eight inches in the northern sections of Amherst and Nelson Counties. Icy conditions are possible as the precipitation turns to a wintry mix before becoming a steady rain. While warmer temperatures and rain are expected to help with melting, the rapid change may create flooding conditions in some areas.
Leading into Sunday night and early Monday, temperatures may once again create some slick roads and motorists need to pay careful attention to the conditions before venturing out.
Road conditions and other real-time travel information can be found on the 511 Virginia website, the free VDOT 511 mobile app or by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia. VDOT updates are also on Facebook and the district’s Twitter account, @VaDOTLynchburg.
The Lynchburg District includes the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
