Appalachian Power reports that 262 Bedford County customers are without power, following Sunday's snow. That amounts to about 1 percent of the company's customers in the county.
Posted: 7:30 a.m.
The region's interstates, including I-81 and I-581, and primary roads (those numbered 1-599) have been plowed and treated overnight and are in "minor condition" this morning, reports the Virginia Department of Transportation.
"Minor condition" means you should see wet pavement and isolated spots of snow, ice or slush.
VDOT advises drivers to look out for slick spots on ramps, bridges and overpasses. "Roads that appear wet may actually be icy and slippery," notes a 4:30 a.m. road update.
All secondary routes (those numbered 600 and above) are in moderate condition (snow or ice on major portions of the roadway), with the exceptions of Henry and Patrick counties, which are in minor condition.

Snowfall of 3 to 7 inches was reported across the Roanoke and New River valleys Sunday, with heaviest snow falling during mid to late afternoon. Several locations had as much as 2 inches falling within an hour.
The snowfall contributed to traffic issues on Interstate 81 and U.S. 220 on Sunday, though there were no reports of major injuries, and schools across the region are closed today.
The snowfall apparently did not cause widespread overnight power outages in the Roanoke region.
Appalachian Power reports that 175 customers in Henry County are without electricity Monday morning. Dominion Power reports that fewer than 100 customers in Rockbridge County were without electricity.
