In between these two regions lies a "snow hole", and in fact a wedge of dry air in the middle atmosphere - called a dry slot - is working across central VA; you can see this nicely in the water vapor satellite image below:

The high resolution models I discussed in my earlier post today suggest that the snow will be intermittent from 3-6 pm, coming in two distinct, light batches out of the WV panhandle. Either way, they also show a sharp back edge clearing our region after 6 pm.
