The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in anticipation of a system expected to impact Central Virginia on Monday.
The City of Richmond, Chesterfield, Henrico, Hanover and Amelia are all included in the Winter Storm Warning, which will be in effect from 7:00 a.m. Monday to 12:00 a.m. Tuesday.
Because the storm is expected to begin as rain, VDOT crews won't be able to pre-treat area roads. While VDOT is over budget for this winter, that doesn't mean less crews will be out on the roads. A VDOT representative told NBC12 even more snow plows will be out this go round.
Here's the latest forecast from Meteorologist Andrew Freiden:
