Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Williamsburg/James City Co., Gloucester Co., Mathews Co., Middlesex Co. and Accomack Co. until Midnight tomorrow.
We’ll see rain changing to sleet and snow tomorrow afternoon. These areas could see several inches of accumulation, creating dangerous driving conditions.
The 60s and 70s today will give way to sleet and snow tomorrow.
A powerful cold front will push through the region tonight and tomorrow. We’ll see temperatures dropping from the 50s around midnight to the lower 30s in the afternoon.
Expect scattered showers to move in this evening and becoming more widespread by Thursday morning. We’ll start the day with a chilly rain. But as the cold air comes filtering in, we’ll see a changeover to sleet and snow from northwest to southeast through the afternoon.
Most of us will see just light accumulations of an inch or less. The lower Peninsula and most of the Eastern Shore may see up to two inches. And the communities under the Winter Weather Advisory may see up the three inches.
Driving conditions will be pretty rotten on Thursday night and Friday morning, as temperatures drop into the lower 20s. Be VIPIR Ready!
