RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – A winter storm warning is in effect for much of the Hampton Roads area Tuesday into Wednesday morning, with a winter weather advisory for a row or two of counties north and west of the warning area.
Arctic air will continue to move into the Commonwealth tonight, with bitterly cold air in place on Tuesday.
Upper-level energy will increase Tuesday morning, with low pressure developing off the North Carolina/Virginia coast Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Heavy snow will be likely across far southeast Virginia, with a dramatic drop off in snow totals over a short distance to the north and west.
The track of this system will be critical to snowfall totals, and any shift east or west will have huge implications on what we see. I’ll continue to dissect subsequent model data, and will have updates for you here and on CBS 6.
