There’s still a chance for Christmas snow in Hampton Roads

Robyn Sidersky, The Virginian-Pilot

That tiny chance of getting snow on Christmas in Hampton Roads is not lost.

It may not be much more than a flurry, but parts of the region could see a snowflake or two by the end of the holiday.

Portions of North Carolina are already getting some snow, along with Richmond and areas closer to Washington.

But Norfolk won’t be left out of the fun. The area could get scattered snowflakes around sunset, said Alec Butner of the National Weather Service in Wakefield. In the afternoon and evening, temperatures will drop into the teens and 20s.

It won’t be an official white Christmas, but that won’t stop anyone from partaking.

Thursday’s storms resulted in a possible tornado in Suffolk and gusts got up to 61 mph at Naval Station Norfolk and Newport News. Gusts were in the 50-60 mph range yesterday in many places around the region. Friday will remain windy, and there could be gusts in the 30 to 35 mph range.
