Nothing like going into a weekend with everyone on the road in Hampton Roads freaking out over potential snow. I guess it is time to batten down the hatches. We have another winter storm predicted to hit the area. They have decided that the storm name is “Khan” and it is coming. Predictions are that we should see snow any second. There should only be 1-2 inches of accumulation, but that is enough for most VA drivers to panic and forget how to drive altogether.

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) - Meteorologists predict snow to accumulate between one and two inches throughout Hampton Roads Friday, especially during the afternoon rush hour.
Winter weather advisory will be in effect starting at 1 p.m. Friday afternoon through 1 a.m. Saturday morning.
Temperatures will stay chilly throughout the day, peaking at 32 degrees during the early afternoon just before the snow starts falling. Keep up with the forecast throughout the day here.
Snow is set to accumulate between 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. Friday. Most of Hampton Roads can expect between one and two inches Friday, but parts of the Eastern Shore could see more than two inches.
A very thin layer of warmer air is going to try to push up from North Carolina, which may create a thin area of freezing rain around 9 p.m. Friday evening.
