Winter isn’t over yet.
Snow from earlier this month has finally melted and the roads are clear, but Mother Nature has more in store for Greater Williamsburg.
Williamsburg will likely get one to two inches of snow on Wednesday after a low-pressure system moves in from the Ohio Valley, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Montefusco.
The snow is slated to start before sunrise Wednesday, and will continue falling through the early evening, Montefusco said. Early precipitation may be a mix of snow and rain, but will quickly turn into light snow.
The snow will clear Wednesday night, but could be problematic for Hampton Roads residents’ evening commute.
And, unfortunately for travelers, “brutal cold” will keep the snow on the roads – possibly through Friday morning, Montefusco said.
“It’s certainly not melting soon,” Montefusco said. “We’ll have similar issues to the last storm with lingering snow and ice for a couple of days, but with less snowfall, the melting with occur a lot faster.”
Thursday morning is expected to be in the lower teens and upper single digits, but will warm up to the 40s during the day.
The snowmelt may refreeze Thursday night, but by Saturday, temperatures will be back in the 50s Saturday and up to the 60s Sunday.
Areas southwest of the Virginia Peninsula may get more snow, he added.
