THERE IS AN INCREASED POSSIBILITY OF A WINTER STORM AFFECTING SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY

This is just a brief update to let you all know that some of the computer models are now indicating that a winter storm may impact Southeastern Virginia beginning Monday night and ending during the day on Tuesday or possibly during the evening hours. In my previous post, I mentioned the possibility of snow, but it seems that the onset of precipitation will be much sooner than was initially expected. There is quite a bit of uncertainty regarding this system (both the timing and precipitation type), so I think it is still too soon to provide projected snowfall amounts. Since a changeover to sleet, freezing rain, or rain is possible in some parts of the area, it is going to be very difficult to nail down potential snowfall accumulations. (Please read my Weather Fact entitled “Predicting Snow in the Hampton Roads Area… Why is it so challenging?”). Meanwhile, we will continue to see the strong winds today (Sunday) and very low wind chill readings, but the winds will slowly subside as the deep low pressure area that has brought the blizzard to Eastern New England moves away. Please monitor updates from the local media and the National Weather Service. I will have an update Monday morning.
