Virginia winters can be unpredictable. From December to March, the Commonwealth averages from eight inches of snow near the coast, to upwards of 25 inches in the mountains. Some areas near the Appalachians receive even more. In addition to snow, freezing rain and sleet are also severe weather threats that local governments must begin preparing for in the fall.
