RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You may be raking leaves now, but soon we might be shoveling snow! So when will those first flakes fall?

Do you think you know better than our NBC12 experts? Meteorologist Andrew Freiden wants your predictions to see if you can be the Snowcaster of the Year.

Nothing quite captures the imagination or grabs the headlines like the first snow of the year.

So, when do you think the first one inch of snow will fall at Richmond International Airport, the official point of measurement for Richmond? I invite you to enter our contest -- who knows? If your prediction is right, you may be the NBC12 Snowcaster of the Year.

Send an email to and include your full name, where you live, and when you think RIC will see its first one inch of snow. Please include the time and date!

No copying, but here is Andrew's guess: December 21 at 6:38 pm.
