Update On Our Snow Chances For TonightJanuary 17th, 2013 at 1:19 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Who wants snow? I don’t think many of us will see much to anything but there may be hope for the snow lovers out there. Most of the computer models still bring in a chance for some accumulating snowfall tonight:
After midnight is still the time-frame when we will see the change from rain to snowfall. When it starts to snow most of the flakes will melt on contact since the ground temperatures are between 40 and 45 degrees.
It is going to be difficult to really see much of any snow stick across the Southside if the warm air sticks around.
Now one thing to remember, this snow is only going to accumulate to these totals around 4-6am. After that we will see the snow continue to melt thanks to the warm ground. Many of us will see the grass/wet conditions by 7-8am tomorrow morning. As for the roads we will only see accumulations for areas north of Newport News. I believe I-64 will just stay wet overnight, but the side streets may get slick for a few hours before sunrise tomorrow. For the latest on the roads check VDOT.
After the snow moves out of our area we will see sunshine and a cold wind out of the north to keep our temperatures in the upper-30s for highs tomorrow.
