Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system moved from the Gulf Coast to off the North Carolina coast. A secondary low moved west of Virginia over Kentucky, bringing a nose of warm air in aloft. This led to a mixture of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain across southwest Virginia, with many areas seeing significant snow or ice accumulations.
Event Narrative Light to moderate moved into the county during the early morning hours on the 5th. The snow turned to a mixture of rain, freezing rain, and sleet during the afternoon, before ending as snow late at night into the day on the 6th. Snowfall accumulations of 7 to 8 inches were reported across the county. Roadways became slick, with many reports of vehicles sliding off roads across the state. The heavy snow and ice also caused the roof of a large dock at a marina at Smith Mountain Lake to collapse. As many as 22 boats, many of which were large, were damaged in the collapse.
