Spring snow in Shenandoah Valley
Spring flowers were snow-capped Sunday morning as the Shenandoah Valley and light snow continued to fall with temperatures in the upper 20s. The wet, heavy precipitation bowed jonquils and covered blooming forsythia bushes as the area remained under a National Weather Service-issued winter weather advisory until 4:00 p.m.
Spring snow is not uncommon in the Valley and, with warming temperatures by mid-week, won't last long. Bob has taken The Journey to D.C. so watch for photos of snow-covered cherry blossoms.
