Snow in Wednesday’s forecast

Another Wednesday….another round of snow.

A cold front is expected to arrive in northeastern North Carolina and southside Virginia on Wednesday morning, bringing a chance of snow with it.

As of Tuesday, the National Weather Service Office in Wakefield, VA is calling for one to three inches of snow in the Roanoke-Chowan area.

Locally, the precipitation may start off as rain mixed with some sleet before changing to snow.

Wednesday’s high is forecasted at 33 degrees. Whatever amount of snow that does fall will stick around as Wednesday night’s low is predicted in the mid-teens.

The good news right now is that this system promises to be a fast-moving low pressure, which cuts down on snowfall accumulation. Weather forecasters are saying this round of snow will not be similar to the winter storm of Jan. 3-4 that left seven inches of white stuff on the ground locally.

Still, Roanoke-Chowan area residents are advised to take all necessary precautions, especially when it comes to travel. If local roads are impacted by sleet or snow, please slow down and leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle you are following.

The local weather improves by later in the week. Look for sunny skies on both Thursday and Friday. The high temp on Thursday will be near 40. It will be a bit warmer on Friday with a high of 50.
