Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:
Dangerous driving conditions are likely on Friday morning, with Rain, Sleet, Freezing Rain and Snow moving in overnight.

Expect the chilly rain to continue for our coastal communities tonight, but parts of the area including the Eastern Shore, Middle Peninsula and Northern Peninsula will see the rain switch over to sleet, freezing rain and snow. Lows will be in the 30s, and at or below freezing mark the further west and north you go. The rain and wintry mix will continue for Friday morning, tapering off by midday.

The best chance for snow accumulation will be on the Eastern Shore, Middle Peninsula, and northern Peninsula. Ice accumulation could be an issue for areas closer to I-95. Temperatures will struggle to reach 40 tomorrow with strong NE winds at 10 to 20 mph and higher gusts.

Another round of rain will move in on Saturday. Some snow could mix in, but most of the snow will be to our north and west. It will be windy on Saturday with NE winds at 10 to 20 and higher gusts. High temperatures will struggle to reach the low 40s. Rain chances will drop but clouds will linger for Sunday with highs in the low 40s and north winds at 10 to 15.
