Rain, snow, and wind… Expect a mix of rain and snow today as moisture and colder air wraps around an area of low pressure off of the coast. The best chance to see snow will be fore areas north and west. Most of Hampton Roads will see between 0” and 1” of accumulation. 1” to 2” possible for areas closer to Richmond, the Middle Peninsula, and Eastern Shore. Most of NE NC will see little to no accumulation. Temperatures will linger in the mid to upper 30s today. It will still be windy with northwest winds at 10 to 20 mph. Expect tidal flooding again today near the early afternoon high tide.

Rain/snow showers will taper off tonight but it will still be windy. Temperatures will drop into the low 30s overnight.

Clouds will linger into Thursday morning but more sunshine will mix in by midday. It will still be chilly with highs in the upper 40s. Winds will remain strong, NW at 10 to 20 and gusts to near 30 mph. Expect sunny skies on Friday with highs near 50.
