Afternoon and Evening Showers, Clearing out Friday

February 16th, 2012 at 3:45 pm by under Weather

We have a few showers moving in to Hampton Roads this afternoon which might make the drive time commutes a little slower than usual. It’s not going to be anything heavy though.

Radar at 3:30pm

To see a live look at the radar go here.  Overnight these showers will continue to move east and eventually clear out. For Friday temperatures will stay in the mid 50s and we will likely have mostly sunny skies. Down to our southwest near New Orleans another storm system will begin to develop on Saturday which we will see move into Hampton Roads this weekend, likely on Sunday.

Tracking the Storm

Sunday is looking like a like a soaker. The latest look at the North American Model (NAM) brought in some heavy rain for Sunday. We could easily pick up over an inch of rain through the day. On Sunday night  the cold front  will continue to move south we could eventually see some wet snowflakes mixing in.  The earliest estimates bring in a half an inch of wet snow.

    Hey Jeff, any chance that northern Gloucester could get a couple inches out of this thing before it’s over? I know we’ll have a few hours of rain first so I’m guessing that will hurt our chances, but I’m hoping we still have a few hours of moderate snow after the changeover. Thanks!

      Based off of the latest models Jeff, I would say that a couple of inches are possible. It’s all up to the changeover time.
