KJ's First Warning Forecast

*** Winter Weather Advisory until midnight for Williamsburg, James City, York, Gloucester, Mathews, Middlesex, Accomack, Northampton (VA), Surry, Sussex, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Northampton (NC).

Wet and icy conditions continue to impact the area... Expect rain tonight and tomorrow along with freezing rain and light ice accumulations. Rain is tapering off some for this afternoon, yet it'll remain overcast with light rain and gusty northeast winds. Gusts upwards of 25 mph may induce minor coastal flooding. In addition, areas inland may face freezing drizzle and slick spots tonight into Saturday.

Another round of rain will move in on Saturday. Some freezing rain (ice) could mix in for areas closer to I-95. It will be windy on Saturday with NE winds at 10 to 20 and higher gusts. Highs at or below 40 Saturday. Drier, yet staying mostly cloudy Sunday for Valentine's Day!

We are tracking two systems next week. One Monday into Tuesday and the next system is Thursday into Friday. Expect mostly rain from both chances but some wintry weather is possible.
