some of the damage gets done people get snowed into their driveways now so the plan is starts coming down the trees will be working twelve hours since the beach just a little over thirty trucks on the roads plowing the roads of course all to keep you safe reporting live in virginia beach secrecy is it a go team is now a lot of snow right now on radar already the one people don't realize that the raiders looking thousands of feet up in the atmosphere so it doesn't always match what's happening down at the ground in this case it certainly isn't very very dry so as the snow is coming down where it's very moist. set your five thousand feet up or whatever it is as it starts coming down by four thousand feet it's somewhat gone in three thousand feet might be completely gone. gradually as that happens the air gets more and more moist and you
6:14 pm
dropping more and more so you're up in a helicopter right now again you might have a few thousand feet to find the snow here within an have to go up a few hundred so eventually all of the starts to fill and these are the spots that money and i emphasize the word might have a little bit of snow occurring right now it's heavy enough that it may have wasted the atmosphere enough that it's finally making it to the ground but even if it is i can guarantee it's still very light out there now later on those same kind of colors in three or four hours will be a more moderate snow because again lot more that'll make it down so here's what to expect next a few flurries are possible late in the day today obviously peak wind gust for today eighteen right now twenty two down in elizabeth city so it's starting to get a little bit more blustery temperatures as you can see right around freezing. maybe a degree or two above and they stay that way for much of the evening as this system
6:15 pm
the drop just below freezing and that way if anything does fall it happens to make on the roads it may have a hard time getting rid of it so we might have some slippery conditions to talk about later tonight. in general i think a lot of us will see flurries and not have an accumulation a lot of spots will see a dusting and a few spots will see up to an angel just depend on this one hit miss variety those in where they end up this have your showers cold temperatures and sunshine during the day tomorrow and then look what happens as we get in the friday thickening clouds temps are starting off cold enough for snow but by the time waster gets here it'll still be snowing a number of spots but some of the southern areas will be starting to see a mix or some rain and then that head these very strong strong wind coming off the water moves that rain snow line more and more. and when preliminary snow ranges just for friday only for friday traced to an inch before it turns over to
6:16 pm
potentially on the peninsula though before you see a mix of late in the day and then it would turn over to rain more like the evening so that's the area more concern are most concerned about for the problems during the afternoon rush hour richmond should stay all snow again that's only for friday you're going to add tremendously to those amounts often to central virginia friday night and saturday so here comes that storm swinging through tonight twenty eight with flurries or light snow and if you have your snow showers and then as we get into the seven day forecast that the mass this weekend strong winds over forty five mph and gusts tide running one to two feet above normal that'll cause some minor flooding and again a mix of all sorts of different precipitation at various times all righty thanks to well in the morning meteorologist greg muller will have the latest snow and temperature forecasts count on ashley for any traffic updates and news team will have all of your latest closings and delays at all
