A winter storm warning is in effect further north and west, and includes Waynesboro, Staunton and Front Royal and Winchester. The NWS predicts snow accumulations ranging from three to six inches in elevations below 1,500 feet, and from six to 10 inches in elevations above 1,500 feet. The heaviest snow is expected between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday, and should end Wednesday afternoon.
Snow along Interstates 64, 81 and 68 “will have a significant impact on holiday travel plans,” the NWS said.
