(WFXR) — Winter weather has made an appearance in the WFXR viewing area, bringing snow, wind, and the feel of Christmas.
WFXR Chief Meteorologist John Carroll said snow accumulation has been slow to materialize but could result in a few inches across the New River Valley.
Frozen roads could be an issue overnight, he added.
“Wet roads are present and there may be a few patches of ice overnight on bridges and overpasses, but this event is not overly impressive.”
The biggest concern is blowing snow reducing visibility.
WFXR has crews across the region who have sent in video and photos of snow in Craig County and Christiansburg.

WFXR’s Kathlynn Stone sent the video below from Christiansburg, where snow was coming down fast.
Snow started to fall overnight Sunday into Monday. A WFXR crew captured video of the snow falling in Craig County.
