The National Weather Service in Blacksburg earlier today issued a winter weather advisory for Danville that will take effect tonight at 7 p.m. A dusting to an inch of snow is expected overnight, with heavier amounts to the west and north of the city.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow may cause slippery road conditions.
Meteorologist Erik Taylor said rain will move into the area late this evening and then transition overnight to a heavy, wet snow. The snow will change over to a mix of snow, sleet and rain around daybreak before ending as rain only around mid-morning.
Snow accumulations are likely on grassy surfaces. With temperatures today reaching the low to mid 50s, street surfaces will be warm and limit any snow accumulation.
Public Works crews will be on standby overnight.
Danville Utilities is monitoring the situation. Crews are prepared to respond as needed.
