***A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of Hampton Roads from tonight through Tuesday morning.***
The same storm system that will bringing feet of snow to the northeast and New England will clip our area, bringing a little rain and a little snow.
We expect scattered showers this evening, with a changeover to snow around midnight tonight. Blowing snow showers are likely overnight and through the early morning commute. The computer forecast models have been trending back on snowfall amounts over the past few runs.
Right now we expect the highest totals to our north, with little if anything across northeast North Carolina. We’re expecting 2-3 inches from the Northern Neck across the Bay to northern Accomack County.
Across the rest of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, we could see 1-2 inches of snow. We’re also expecting as much as 1-2 inches of snow on the middle and lower Peninsulas.
For Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake we’re expecting 1/2 inch to 1 inch of snow, with smaller amounts to the west and south.
Snow should be done by noon tomorrow with clearing skies in the afternoon.
It looks like we’ll stay dry through the rest of the work week. But we’re tracking another storm system that could bring us more rain or snow early next week.
