The National Weather Service in Wakefield, Virginia has released a briefing prepared as of 3:15 PM EST Thursday January 7, 2021 in regards to the upcoming winter weather event on Friday. Some uncertainty still remains regarding exact snow amounts and timing. However, the best chance for accumulating snow (~1") still remains across Southern VA along/south of Hwy 460 and along/west of Interstate 95 on Friday. Timing of the event has changed somewhat in that we now think precipitation will start as snow and then transition to a rain/snow mix or all rain from late morning into the afternoon. A rain/snow mix or a transition back to all snow is then expected as the precipitation ends from west to east Friday evening into Friday night.
