Hold onto your hats or, rather, your snow shovels because the Valley is set to receive more snow on Thursday. Augusta County, as of Wednesday afternoon, was in the predicted 6-9 inch range. However, watch for variations as weathermen tighten the forecast in the hours approaching the storm.
The temperature at my house west of Staunton on Wednesday afternoon hit a high of 48 degrees. Overnight rains took away much snow left from the past couple of weeks but there is still plenty of snow waiting for the new storm. Misty rain continues under dark, gray skies.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has put the entire area under a Winter Storm Watch for Thursday. A winter mix is expected overnight that will turn into snow as colder air moves into the area.
