SUNDAY WILL TURN WET AND WINDY AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM SLIDES TO OUR SOUTH AND INTENSIFIES… SOME SNOW MAY OCCUR AS THE SYSTEM PULLS AWAY, BUT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS, IF ANY, SHOULD BE MINOR HERE IN HAMPTON ROADS

The forecast from yesterday seems right on track with rain getting ready to spread into Hampton Roads. It will be light and intermittent at first but it should pick up as the day progresses. Winds will also pick up as the pressure gradient increases. Coastal areas will see waves increasing but tides should only be slightly above normal. The rain may turn to snow as the low begins to pull away off the coast. Exactly how much snow we receive is questionable now as it is not certain how long the snow will last after the changeover. Also, temperatures will be marginally cold enough for snow, so the other factor is whether the snow will stick. Right now, the forecast is an inch of snow or less for Hampton Roads. However, as you go north and west, accumulations increase. For example, Richmond is expected to receive one to three inches of snow. On Monday, it’s over and temperatures should rise to the mid to upper 40’s. It appears that a warming trend will set in by mid-week. A couple of weak systems may affect the area later in the week. I’ll have an update on Monday. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
