It is very important to realize the forecast is still subject to change throughout the day but especially from this morning to the 10pm newscast tonight when we'll have radar observations on where the heavier bands of snow are and the most up to date models. In general, more snow is expected along and north of 460. As warmer air gets infused into the system, some sleet and freezing rain will be possible in the metro, with a higher likelihood south and southeast of Richmond.
