Viburnum pruning

My viburnum bushes need to be cut back dramatically. I was told to do this in spring. They are starting to bud now but the weather man says snow is on the way. When would be the best time to prune them, now or wait after the snow?

Thanks for writing. You can prune them at any time before they start to leaf out; snow, rain, or other weather shouldn't really have much of an effect on them.
