ANOTHER WEEK AND YES, ANOTHER MAJOR STORM IS ON THE WAY… HOWEVER, A GREAT LATE JANUARY WEEKEND WILL GIVE US A CHANCE TO GET OUT AND ENJOY… WILL THE NORTHEAST RECEIVE ANOTHER MAJOR SNOWSTORM?

This past week brought heavy rain to Hampton Roads and another crippling snowstorm to parts of the Northern Mid-Atlantic States and the Northeast. In my backyard, almost an inch and a half of rain fell from that mid-week storm system. From D.C. through New England, it was snow and there was a lot of it, more than what was expected by most forecasters. New York City received 19 inches and it fell in a very short period of time. I heard reports of snowfall rates were nearly 3 inches per hour, which contributed to lightning and thunder. Many cities up there are well above normal in total snowfall and we have plenty of winter to go. For us here in Hampton Roads, we have a fairly nice weekend to enjoy before the next wet weather system moves our way. Temperatures on Saturday should be around 50 and Sunday will be a little cooler. A weak cold front will pass through the area Saturday night with no significant precipitation expected here locally. I’ll have more details on the storm system that should bring us a decent shot of rain Tuesday and/or Wednesday in my Sunday morning post. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
