ROANOKE, Va. – It - so far - has been a pretty snowless winter in southwest and central Virginia, so it doesn’t take much at this point to get some of us excited.

Despite ground temperatures of 33 to 37° early Groundhog Day, temperatures above the surface were way colder. That resulted in wet snowflakes that either accumulated in higher elevations or on things like grass, decks, etc.
