Snow might be coming, but don’t pull out your sleds just yet

Residents in Williamsburg might look out their windows Saturday night to see snowflakes hitting the ground.

But right now, meteorologists aren’t sure what kind of precipitation the area will experience.

“I wouldn’t be shocked to see snow,” said Jeff Orrock, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “But this far out we can’t make exact predictions because everything is jumping around.”

Orrock said snow in Williamsburg is dependent on whether the impending storm system tracks closer to the north or south of the area.

If the system moves north, then Williamsburg most likely will see a mixture of snow and rain. But if it goes south toward Wilmington, North Carolina, Orrock said there will be a stickier snowfall.

But since the storm system hasn’t even made landfall yet, meteorologists can’t have any close predictions on accumulation.

“We’re making predictions on a storm system that doesn’t exist yet and won’t come into being until about Friday,” he said.

When the storm system hits the United States, meteorologists are predicting it will form near the southwest and south central part of the country.

Orrock said there is a consistency of snowfall predictions across the various weather models and if the storm pushes further inland, the chances of snow will increase.

But by how much can’t be determined.

“There’s a good chance people will see some snow,” Orrock said. “It’s just a matter if people will see definite accumulations.”
