Colder Today, Rain Coming This Weekend, Maybe Snow?December 28th, 2012 at 10:33 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
High Pressure is still in control today giving us a nice mix of sun and clouds today. It is staying chilly though with highs only in the mid-40s. This area of high pressure is going to fade away tonight with a lot of us seeing increasing clouds. Tomorrow we will likely see the next storm system.
I am expecting the rain to start tomorrow morning before 6am across Hampton Roads. Most of us will see the majority of the rain in the morning with scattered showers in the afternoon. For the Northern Neck, you might have a chance to see some wet snowflakes mixing in.
If the temperatures in the lower levels (850mb) can remain at or below freezing then we have a good chance at seeing snow.
If you see snow, there won’t be enough cold air for any accumulations. For the rest of us expect around 1/2 inch of rain from this system. It will move out on Sunday and we will see partly sunny skies then.
The chance for some real snow for the rest of us isn’t in the forecast for the next two weeks, so I guess we’ll have to sit tight for now.
