The First Snow Of the YearJanuary 18th, 2013 at 10:01 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Not all of us saw the snow accumulate overnight, but we did get several reports of snow and some nice pictures in this morning as well.
The picture above is from the Whaleyville area of Suffolk, Va. Thanks to Carol for sending in that picture.
In Suffolk there was about 1-2″ of snow than fell. Across the water in Gloucester not as much snow fell, but there was still a nice blanket of it this morning.
Most of the snow totals were close to one inch from this storm complex.
- Newport News: 2″
- Williamsburg: 2-3″
- Norfolk (ODU): Trace
- Chesapeake (Greenbrier): .5″
- Virginia Beach: 0″
- Yorktown: 1″
- Gloucester: 1″
- Reedville: 0.5″
- Accomac: 0.5″
- Suffolk: 1″
We could have received more snow from this system if we had either of the following happen.
1. The ground temperature was colder and close to 32 degrees.
2. The storm was moving slower allowing for more snow to accumulate before it moved out of the area.
I hope you enjoyed it while we had it, no snow or rain is in the forecast for the next week.
