Well we had some good snow across the region. The southside and North Carolina had the most snow so far where anywhere from 1-4″ of snow fell. Some locations will probably end up with 5″, but they will be isolated. Snow was beginning to taper off by 8:30am in Hampton Roads. The snow will push out between 9 and 10am. Here was a snapshot of Super Doppler 10 from this morning:
Our computer model did a good job with the snow this morning. Future Trak shows the snow beginning to push out this mid-morning:
We had some nice photos sent in this morning of the snow. Jamie Bastas (who works for us by the way) sent in this cool picture of the snow in Portsmouth.
Nicole Michaud sent in this next photo of snow in Virginia Beach around Nimmo Parkway. It looks like a postcard out of the northeast.
Finally, Kim sent in this photo form Currituck N.C. near the airport.
Snow came down pretty good after that was sent. So we got the snow across the area. By midday we will see partly cloudy skies. We could have mostly sunny skies for a while this afternoon. Hopefully, that will help to melt some of the roads. Winds will be northerly at 10-15mph with higher gusts. So it will stay chilly today with highs in the upper 30s. Tonight skies will clear and temperatures will drop to the mid 20s. We’ll even see low 20s in a few areas. Tomorrow we will warm up a bit to the low 40s with partly cloudy skies. Tomorrow evening another weak area of low pressure will form offshore. This should be far enough away that most of the viewing area will be dry. However, it may bring a little wintry mix to the southern Outer Banks tomorrow night. The bulk of the moisture should stay offshore, but residents down that way should stay tuned just in case.
The weekend will be very nice with lots of sunshine and highs in the 50s. Upper 50s Sunday. Wahoo! Hope you enjoy the snow today.
