Snow EndingJanuary 29th, 2014 at 7:06 am by Jeremy Wheeler under Weather
This is a quick morning update. Snow is ending across most of the region, but it is lingering along the coast.
We’ve seen between 4-11″ of snow in the region. We will be putting together a list of the totals later this morning, but here are a couple of reports. We had one report out of Norfolk at 11″. Donna in Blackwater (southern Virginia Beach) had 8″. Theresa in Chesapeake had 9″. Another 1-2″ is still possible over coastal North Carolina. So between what we’ve seen and the little bit of snow left over, we are looking at numbers fairly close to the forecast:
Almost all the roads are completely covered in snow. A lot of vehicles will not be able to make it through. Especially where we’ve seen 7 or more inches of snow. Hopefully, the plows are out in full force. Keep in mind too that snow will be blowing and drifting today.
Again, this will be drying up for everyone by the mid-morning. Highs will be in the upper 20s today. No melting is expected. Winds will be out of the north at 10-20mph with gusts up to 25mph. Wind chills are in the single digits this morning. They will be between 8-18 today. We’ll have a bigger update on the blog later this morning. Be safe out there.
