Snow to our North, Could we see some Tonight?November 7th, 2012 at 5:26 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
A few of us might see a flake or two tonight, nothing as heavy as our neighbors are seeing to the North.
This storm system is moving quickly to the north so we are in the clear to see any heavy rain or gusty winds. We still have our highest “High” tide coming up early Thursday morning (close to 3am) where the tide should be around 4.7′. (Or about 1/2ft higher than the tide we had this afternoon) If you live on a street that floods you should consider moving your car if you park on the street.
For the snow lovers you might see some snow mixing in tonight.
That purple is the wintry mix. We have two key factors that might help or hurt the chance for snow.
The Good: Cold temperatures in the upper levels of the atmosphere.
The Bad: The surface temperature and the air just above ground. Temperatures are still in the mid-40s in many areas so any flakes that might get close to the ground are going to struggle pushing through this warmer air.
Early Thursday morning the possibility for that wintry mix moves across the Southside as the last wave of moisture moves across Hampton Roads.
Regardless if we see the wet snow or not we won’t see any accumulations since the ground temperature are too warm.
For tomorrow that northwest wind will continue, that will keep us dry. In the afternoon we should see clearing skies.
