NWS: slight chance of 'significant' winter storm this weekend

Staff Writer

There’s a chance Williamsburg could see snow this weekend, the National Weather Service warned Tuesday.

While there’s uncertainty about whether or not the snow will get this far, there’s an increasing chance of it, National Weather Service at Wakefield Meteorologist-in-Charge Jeff Orrock said in an email.

If the storm arrives as forecasted, its effects will be felt after 7 a.m. Saturday through 7 a.m. Monday.

“There is an increasing chance the area will see accumulating snow which could be significant in some locations,” Orrock wrote. “How much snow falls and exactly where will depend on the storm track and it is too soon to nail down all the details.”

Forecasters predict Williamsburg is at a slight chance to receive the winter storm, while the Piedmont region of the state is at a higher risk.
