So let’s talk about this upcoming weekend. Along with the snow we have a push of cold air that will continue tonight, Friday and Saturday with a north wind close to 10-15 mph. That cold air will stay in place Sunday morning as a storm system moves in from the west.
It’s looking likely that the snow will be here before sunrise Sunday morning. We could easily see the snow continue past 9 AM.
Once we get to the middle of the day, the warmer air will push in from the south and likely switch the snow back over to rain. At this point, the Hampton Roads cities will likely see all rain by Sunday night. However, as you know, there will be changes to the forecast and we’ll have a better idea on how much snow we could see into the day tomorrow and Saturday. The earliest models have snow totals around an inch Sunday morning.
