ROAD CONDITIONS IMPROVE, WHAT’S AHEAD?
Additional precipitation possible overnight and into Tuesday
LYNCHBURG — (2 p.m.) The ice storm that struck the state over the weekend is over for the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Warmer temperatures and clearing skies have melted the ice that lingered on many roads, especially at higher elevations.
Motorists, however, need to continue their vigilance. Melting ice could refreeze tonight when temperatures dip to near or below freezing and additional precipitation might occur later tonight and/or into Tuesday.
It is important that motorists know the conditions before traveling. VDOT’s 511 travel website, www.511virginia.org is updated in real time with weather and road conditions for all highways in Virginia. A 511 mobile app is also available and travelers can call 511 from any phone.
The Lynchburg District is comprised of the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
