Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:
Tracking rain, and a little bit of snow Friday through Saturday morning.

Expect mostly rain showers Friday, with the highest chance in the afternoon to evening. Some snow or sleet could mix in Friday morning. And then we'll see a transition back to some snow Friday night and early Saturday.

Forecast models have not come into agreement about how much snow we can expect.

The bottom line is that most of us will see little accumulating snow. Our best chance for a little accumulation will be in our inland locations, from Suffolk west to I-95 and the inland North Carolina counties close to I-95.

We're also including a slight chance for a dusting of snow on the Peninsulas and northern Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Any leftover rain or snow showers will move out Saturday morning and clouds will clear through the afternoon. Highs will only reach the low 40s and it will be windy, N 10-15 with gusts to 20+ mph. Expect sunshine with highs in the mid 40s and light winds on Sunday.

Another storm system will approach the area on Monday leading to increasing clouds. Tuesday could feature a wintry mix for our northern and northwestern locations, but most of us can expect mainly rain. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the 40s.
