The Snow is Done, How Much Did We Get?January 29th, 2014 at 3:20 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Snow totals were impressive from this snow event and followed closely to what we were forecasting yesterday. Here is the map that Meteorologists Don Slater and Tiffany Savona showed Tuesday night.
Here are some snow totals that we gathered this morning.
In Yorktown 3.5″ of snow fell. Gloucester saw 5″ of snow. Near Kitty Hawk and Manteo, snow totals were near 6 inches this morning! In Accomac 7″ of snow fell. The map below shows a wider look at the snow totals across the region.
Take a look at this time lapse:
Thank you to everyone that sent in reports and pictures. Our web producers have been working hard to put them into a slideshow for you all to view.
Highs today were only in the 20s, so we did not see a lot of melting. Road conditions have improved since this morning, but it be a slow improvement. VDOT has been working hard 24/7 to clear the roads and most of the major highways and roads have been cleared. However, any slush or water will re-freeze tonight. Bridges and overpasses could be slick as well. Most secondary roads are probably still snow covered, so slippery conditions will continue into Thursday. If you don’t have to travel, best advice would be to stay off the roads. High temperatures will stay below freezing most of the day tomorrow too. The sun will help to melt a little bit of the snow, but not much. We should see a gradual warm-up over the next few days. Highs will be in the 40s on Friday with 50s in the forecast this weekend. So the kids will have at least 1-2 more days to play in the snow.
Meteorologists Don Slater and I will have a complete update on a special edition of WAVY News 10 starting at 4 PM today.
