WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SNOW?… A SPECIAL UPDATE AND EXPLANATION

For the folks in Hampton Roads, everyone is asking “what happened to the snow that was predicted here today?” To simplify the answer, the dry air won out over the moisture. In addition, the wind direction didn’t help produce snow by bringing in moisture from the ocean. Overall, the low pressure area was just too far away. Why didn’t forecasters see that? I’m not sure. I do know that a forecaster did think that we would be missed by the snow today, but he is not located here in Hampton Roads.  It is very hard to predict snow here locally as many things have to come together to produce snow. Please read my weather fact that discusses this issue in detail for Hampton Roads.
