NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Weather officials say some parts of Virginia have been blanketed under close to a foot of snow as the storm moves out of the state.

The National Weather Service said parts of southeast Virginia had seen nearly a foot of snow by Saturday afternoon.

More than 11 inches were reported in Williamsburg while meteorologists say Richmond saw more than 6 inches.

The National Weather Service says about 5 inches of snow fell around Roanoke.

The storm was winding down in central Virginia by Saturday afternoon, but a blizzard warning remains in effect until 10 p.m. for southeast Virginia, including Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

Officials are urging residents to stay home so workers can clear the roads.
