Light snow covers the Shenandoah Valley

snow-plow-headerLight snow is covering roadways in the Shenandoah Valley.  Precipitation started shortly after nightfall as some sleet and snow and continues into the evening hours.

Motorists should use caution throughout the region since wet surfaces may contain ice. Virginia Department of Transportation crews are monitoring and treating roads as needed. Travelers should use extra caution on bridges and overpasses as elevated surfaces freeze first.

Most roads are in clear to minor condition.  However in Bath County roads are in moderate condition.
