Effects of Winter Storm to Continue into Tuesday
Motorists should anticipate possible icy conditions
LYNCHBURG – A mixed bag of precipitation --rain, snow, light sleet and a combination of all three – has fallen across the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) today and its effects will linger into Tuesday.
While snow is expected to end during the evening hours Monday, motorists should anticipate icy conditions, especially on bridges, overpasses and ramps through midmorning Tuesday.
Up to several inches of snow have fallen on roadways as of early afternoon and temperatures have been hovering near freezing. Temperatures are expected to rise and most precipitation turn to rain before ending in the early evening.
Motorists may monitor road conditions using VDOT’s free 511 tools. Additional information about winter-weather preparations and response may be found on VDOT’s website at www.virginiadot.org/travel/snow.asp. Local updates will be posted to VDOT’s Lynchburg District Twitter account.
