The snow and rain move out and much colder temps move in….We’ve seen quite a bit of snow falling across parts of Hampton Roads and NE North Carolina today. Several areas have reported some accumulations. However, as we go through the mid to late afternoon, most of the snow and rain will exit the coast, giving way to partly cloudy skies and cold conditions. Low temperatures will be dipping in the mid and upper 20s, which will create a few concerns tonight. Any leftover snow or slush on the ground will likely freeze, which will create slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses so keep that in mind.

We’ll see a bit more sun Monday and Tuesday, but it won’t be warm at all. High temperatures will only rise into the mid 30s! Highs will climb back into the 40s by Wednesday and Thursday. Then, by next weekend, stay alert.  Another area of low pressure could bring us a chance of snow, especially late next Friday into Saturday. We’ll continue to track it for you through the week!

Today: Mostly Cloudy.  Rain/Snow Mix (80%). Some accumulations possible. High temperatures in the lower 40s. Winds: N 10-15 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Cold.  Low temperatures in the mid and upper 20s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.

Monday: Partly Cloudy and Cold. Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: W 10-20 mph.
