Winter weather here at last?

SoVaNow.com / January 17, 2013
Forecasters are warning of a fast-moving winter weather system that may bring an accumulation of snow tonight — prompting local residents to rush out yesterday to grocery stores for bread, milk and other staples to get through the storm.

The forecast for the area is “a moderate accumulation of snow,” beginning late today. Schools are already scheduled to be closed on Friday in celebration of Lee-Jackson Day.

With more rain predicted early in the morning, followed later by a mix of snow and sleet, the Dan River is expected to reach a height of 22 feet today, possibly spilling out over its banks along the site of the Crossing of the Dan memorial.

According to South Boston Town Manager Ted Daniel, the rising water level is not expected to create any flooding of roads in the Riverdale area.

However, Daniel pointed to the possibility that more precipitation could raise the water level to some 25 feet, which could cause some minor flooding, but still not be enough to get into the roadway.
