Tracking Rain and SnowMarch 16th, 2014 at 9:28 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
I have been watching this storm system closely for the past few days. One thing that has changed the most since yesterday is the models are trending for a warmer solution. If the models are warmer, that means less snow and more rain across our area.
We’ll see scattered showers move in across the Tidewater area around 2-3pm today. At this point, no sleet or snow is expected.
Late this evening we’ll start to see the rain changing over to sleet/snow across the Middle Peninsula, N. Neck, and Accomac County on the Eastern Shore. If you live in this area, you have the best chance to see some accumulations. If you are south of that line, snow totals will be minimal.
The wintry precip begins to fade away tomorrow morning which should decrease the impact across many areas.
The majority of the Hampton Roads cities will be spared from this storm only receiving a chilly rainfall. Other areas to the north still have a chance to see snow. Travel will be difficult tonight and tomorrow in the areas where the snow falls. Temperatures will be near 37 tomorrow afternoon, so the melting process will be slow for areas that do receive snow and ice.
We will see more rain Late on Monday night and also Tuesday before we dry out on Wednesday.
