LIVE UPDATES: Saturday snow

Graphic Weather 2

Now that the snow has tapered off, our attention turns to temperatures lowering into the 20s overnight.  This means wet roads in the Metro Richmond area could turn to patches of black ice during the early morning hours.

CBS 6 will closely be tracking the storm overnight.  Click refresh on the page for updates throughout the day, and scroll down to see all the entries.

From Mike Goldberg:
Snow is now tapering off across much of central Virginia. However, a bit more is likely through the evening to the east of Metro Richmond, from the Northern Neck to Williamsburg and south to the North Carolina line.

An inch or two may accumulate across this region, and a Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 1 A.M.

Our attention will now turn to the temperatures lowering into the 20s. This will cause wet roads to become slick in spots overnight, with patches of black ice forming during the early morning hours. Tomorrow will be a windy and cold day, with temperatures in the 30s and wind chills likely remaining below the freezing mark.

The work week will start with a quiet and seasonably cold day on Monday. Then the next storm will move in on Tuesday, producing good rain chances as temperatures rebound into the 50s.

An update from meteorologist Carrie Rose – WTVR CBS 6

“BLACK ICE alert! Tonight, temperatures will fall well below freezing…and that means any wetness on the pavement will freeze. Expect black ice to be a problem from your front porch steps to your driveway to the untreated roads. This will be a problem for you Sunday morning folks getting out and about.”

VDOT says slick road conditions are expected overnight.

“Air and pavement temperatures are expected to fall below freezing around midnight, resulting in the possibility of icy driving conditions in the region. Drivers are advised to limit travel overnight through 10 a.m. tomorrow due to the potential for black ice.

VDOT and contractor crews will apply sand and salt overnight through early tomorrow to moist pavement as needed, focusing on areas that typically freeze first – bridges, overpasses and ramps. The sand provides traction and salt helps to melt ice. However, drivers must reduce their speed in icy conditions, even when roads have been treated.”

From Chief Meteorologist Zach Daniel:

“Light to moderate snow continues to fall across central and eastern Virginia, with the snow now beginning to stick on grassy surfaces in the Richmond metro area. Surface temperatures are ranging from 32-34 degrees in areas along the western edge of the precipitation. Southeast and eastern Virginia will see snow lasting well into tonight where 1-3″ of total snowfall is likely. A winter weather advisory remains in affect for these areas. The snowfall forecast map posted yesterday afternoon still holds for what I expect to see from this system.”
