Team Norfolk - Snow Forecast update (1/27/2022 at 9 am)

Posted on January 27, 2022 at 9:11 AM by Daniel Hudson

Team Norfolk,


Please see the morning briefing from the NWS.  The forecast remains pretty consistent with yesterday afternoon.  The expected snowfall still falls within the 4-6” range with the worst-case (1 in 10 chance) around 12”.  Also, the arrival of the snow looks to be moved ahead just a bit, now around 8-10 pm tomorrow night.  The frigid temps to arrive during the overnight Friday night hours and the Saturday morning high tide also has not changed.


Today we have a Policy Call scheduled at 3:30 pm; please send a summary of your preparatory actions by 3 pm.  We also have a VDEM / NWS / VDOT call at 4 pm.


Thank you!

Jim Redick, Director

Norfolk Emergency Preparedness and Response
