Please see the latest updated briefing attached. Forecasts have been updated in NC to include several hours of sleet especially for counties along the Albemarle sound. Several inches of sleet may accumulate this evening before a changeover to snow overnight. The heavy snow band has also been pushed a little north into southside Hampton Roads and VA Eastern Shore. Forecasts have changed very little for central VA.


Regarding the period of sleet across northeast NC and even into southern Chesapeake and southern VA Beach. The accumulation of sleet under the snow pack could potentially make road conditions even worse overnight and Wednesday morning and while the sleet in these areas would reduce snow totals, the significant impacts on roads and travel remain
