RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia is waking up to a winter smorgasbord, with more a foot of snow in the southern and southwest areas of the state and a sloppy mix elsewhere such as the Richmond area, where snow has turned to rain.

The National Weather Service says snow continued to fall Thursday in the northern part of the state, with depths ranging from a half foot in Fredericksburg to 10 inches in Winchester. The heaviest snowfall totals were reported in Blacksburg, with more than a foot, as well as some other southwest locations.

Late Thursday, Virginia State Police reported nearly 900 calls for service and troopers responded to 342 vehicle crashes. State police reported one weather-related fatality, in Halifax County.

Dominion Virginia Power is reporting more than 6,000 power outages.
