As of right now, there could be snow this weekend for the Eastern Shore. The snow is forecast to begin late Saturday morning and finish Saturday night. According to Jon Cash of WAVY-TV, the southern end of the Eastern Shore should see between 3-5 inches this weekend, with the northern end only getting about 1-2 inches of accumulations.
Virginia residents are reminded to drive safely and cautiously if ice accumulates on the road. Motorists should also beware of falling branches or downed power lines. If you approach a downed power line, do not touch it and call A&N Electric, your local electric cooperative.
