Winter Weather Brief #3 - 2/16 AM

Good morning – here is Winter Weather Brief #3 for the city.
Below is a summary of the impending winter storm in addition to the current forecasted total snowfall map and hourly weather graph, respectively.


·         Winter Storm Warning: effective 2/16 – 4pm until 2/17 – 12pm

Hazards: Snow; forecasted amounts have risen to 8-10 inches. Isolated spots that see a heavier band or two of snow throughout the city may see more.


·         Monday

o   High: 21

o   Low: 18

·         Tuesday

o   High: 29

o   Low: 19

Timing: Precipitation is still on track to begin in the late afternoon hours today – 2/16 and come to an end around the mid-to-late morning hours on 2/17.

City impacts: With the snow falling in the evening/overnight into the mid-morning hours, there will be high potential for traffic/travel issues to include any morning commute around and coming into the city. Please take this into consideration for any travel that you may have to make in the city. The power outage number (from the high wind event) has decreased to currently 789 for the city, and Dominion Power’s expectation is that all customers will be restored by the end of today – 2/16. New power outages are possible with the heavy snowfall and consistent below-freezing temperatures. Additionally, high temperatures for each day are not forecasted to reach above freezing until at least Saturday – 2/21 at this point.
