The National Weather Service in Blacksburg, Va., reports heavy snow possible with total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, with localized higher amounts along ridgetops.

"By early Monday and by mid morning we could see that change over to completely snow and maybe even reach down to the lower valleys" of counties to our west.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be breezy, chilly days for March with some snow showers possible, but still will get above freezing with periods of sunshine each day.

A more widespread 6-10-inch snowfall remains what would be considered a reasonable "high end" scenario with this storm.
