(WFXR) — Communities around southwest Virginia — especially in the New River Valley and the Roanoke Valley — looked outside to see flurries and larger snowflakes falling down over the course of the day on Friday.

In Wytheville, the snow that fell in Withers Park and outside Spiller Elementary created some idyllic winter scenes.

Just after 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 8, the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office warned motorists about the snow already covering the roads, especially in the western side of the county.

Montgomery County Emergency Services issued a similar warning Friday morning.

However, Friday morning’s snowfall also extended beyond the New River Valley and reached the Roanoke Valley later in the day.

There was a light dusting of snow in the Cave Spring area Friday morning.

The eastern side of Roanoke County also saw some Friday flurries, with snow falling outside of Bonsack.
