National Weather Service: Winter storm watch issued; 3-6 inches of snow in forecast

Well, it looks like the day is coming. After a streak of freezing — but dry — days, it looks like the clouds will unload some snow on the region.

A Winter Storm Watch issued by the National Weather Service on Tuesday predicts the Virginia Peninsula could get 3 to 6 inches accumulated snow between Wednesday and Thursday.

The high on Wednesday will get above freezing to 37, and there’s a 30 percent chance for snow. In the evening, the service says snow is likely. There’s a 70 percent chance for precipitation, and around that time, the temperature will be diving down to 23.

Winds will blow up to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 24 mph. Significant reductions in visibility are possible, the watch states.

Roads may be hazardous as snow accumulates.

Snow is expected to fall through at least 10 a.m. Thursday morning with a slight chance for more snow between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
