Residents can expect a few snowflakes and some wind chill on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service Wakefield office.
“It’s definitely a gusty, blistery day tomorrow,” said Mike Montefusco, meteorologist at the NWS Wakefield office. “We are certainly looking at some chilly conditions over the next couple days.”
While the Tidewater area is expecting “potential for accumulating snow” on Wednesday night, the Historic Triangle won’t get much snow sticking to the ground.
“Well, in terms of the Triangle area, it really doesn’t look like much of a snow event this evening,” Montefusco said.
Instead, residents can expect a low of around 30 degrees or “right around freezing” Wednesday evening to Thursday morning with a potential for snow showers, Montefusco said.
“There will be some flakes flying around but it wouldn’t be a major accumulation,” he added.
On Thursday morning, residents can expect “a coating of snow across the Colonial Triangle region” with a temperature high of 40 degrees. However with wind gusts of 30 to 45 mph from the northwest, it will feel like 20 degrees throughout the day, Montefusco said.
But Thursday afternoon, the snow showers will end and residents will be left with a mix of sun and clouds for the remainder of the day.
“As far as snowfall goes, there won’t be any in the afternoon,” Montefusco added.
For those traveling to the Southside on Thursday, Norfolk is expected to get up to “an inch or so” and places like Suffolk and Chesapeake are projected to get around an inch to an inch and half of snow, he noted.
“Certainly just prepare for a cold couple of days coming up,” Montefusco added. “Just be prepared for a cold windy day tomorrow.”
