An Update For Tuesday’s SnowJanuary 20th, 2014 at 8:18 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Since the blog from yesterday the models have been getting “wetter” with more moisture anticipated; meaning that we may see more snow. First of all, for today, sunny skies and highs near 60 degrees are expected. It should be a nice day today. Tomorrow morning looks to be cloudy, but still dry.
We are going to see this storm system develop over us tomorrow in the afternoon. Snowfall will be likely around 1-2pm for the N. Neck and Middle Peninsula. Across the Peninsula and Southside we may see rainfall at this time. Towards 3-4pm that’s when the Peninsula and parts of the Southside will see the the rain to snow changeover happen.
Later in the evening it will start to snow in to NE N.C. Also, at this time for the Hampton Roads cities and other areas that have already seen the snow since midday will start to see road conditions deteriorate. At the same time the storm system is over us, we will also have very strong winds develop. Wind speeds will be 20-30mph with gusts up to 40mph. Across the Eastern Shore there may be gusts up to 50mph from this storm system. Periods of heavy snow will be possible around 9-10pm across the Southside which will allow quick accumulations on roads.

We have to keep a close eye on how the forecast for this storm changes over the next day. Adjustments will still need to be made to the snow total map. I am most concerned about the threat for ice on the roads on Wednesday morning. Remember, our temperatures are going to be in the teens Wednesday morning which will allow the slushy snow to freeze.
I will keep you updated with the forecast coming up on WAVY TV 10 Midday. Tiffany Savona and Don Slater will be in tonight at 5pm with more updates.
