You may have thought forecasters have been like the little boy that cried wolf, but now a taste of winter is really coming.
Calvin Meadows with the National Weather Service in Sterling says their forecast models are more clear now and the accumulation totals are updates. Expect about two to four inches of snow to fall across Fredericksburg overnight Tuesday and an additional two to four inches to fall during the day and early evening on Wednesday. The coastal storm will bring more of the white stuff to areas to the south and west. Falling temperatures will mean anything that comes from the sky by late Tuesday and into early Wednesday will be snow.
Local power companies are advising people to have batteries and flashlights on hand, along with an alternative heat source.
