Winter Storm Heads into Virginia; What Will Fredericksburg Get?

by Deirdre Blake posted Jan 2 2014 9:43AM
The winter storm that's barreled into the northeast will not leave our region unscathed.
Another low pressure system off the coast will also add to our problems later on today. It will bring in moisture, arctic winds and drop temperatures by double digits. Look for rain over the region later this afternoon. Accuweather says that could change over to snow by about 8:00 p.m. and leave us with up to an inch of accumulation into the evening. 
A bigger issue still will be the temperatures. They are expected to bottom out tonight at about 19 and stay that way well into tomorrow morning. The daytime high on Friday is only expected to be in the upper 20s and wind gusts will be added on top. 
Travel could be treacherous on Friday morning, so keep an eye on the forecast and stay home if you can. Remember, it will take you six times longer to stop your vehicle on icy roads, so slow down if you have to be out. Power outages are also possible since even a trace of ice on power lines and tree limbs could increase their weight by up to 30 times.
