HAMPTON ROADS — Just as the snow from the previous storms had melted away, Hampton Roads and northeastern North Carolina are predicted to get more snow on Saturday, Jan. 29.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Wakefield, a coastal storm could bring as much as six inches of snow to the Historic Triangle.

The storm may start off as light rain on Friday afternoon, Jan. 28, before turning into snow that night. The snow is expected to keep piling up through 7 a.m. Saturday morning.

An NWS Facebook post from Thursday morning, Jan. 27, said, “Confidence continues to increase for chances of accumulating snow from a coastal low Fri evening-Sat, especially for areas east of I-95 and closer to the coast,”

The post went on to say, that even a small change in the track of the low could result in potentially significant changes in expected snowfall. So there is a possibility in differences in the amount of snow any one locality gets.

In anticipation of the weather, the Richmond District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has begun to treat the roads to prevent ice and snow from sticking.
