I HATE Winter!

Compared to areas to the north and west of Hampton Roads, the coming storm should be relatively mild.  Nonetheless, we can expect a local freak out and the poor driving skills of local drivers being made painfully obvious.  Here's the forecast via the Virginian Pilot:
It’ll be a wet and windy weekend in Hampton Roads.

The National Weather Service has a high-wind watch in effect for tonight through early Sunday. Parts of the region could see gusts up to 55 mph.

Officials warn drivers of hazardous conditions, especially for vehicles with a high center of gravity.
In addition, a significant winter storm is expected to bring snow in the late morning, turning into rain this afternoon. An accumulation of less than an inch of snow is possible.

The service has a coastal flood watch in effect from 4 a.m. to noon Saturday. Snow or sleet is possible late in the day.

It should start to clear by Sunday, with a chance for showers earlier, turning to a mostly sunny and breezy day in the upper 30s.

I wish I was in Key West right now!!  And I wish I didn't have to drive to Virginia Beach oceanfront to meet with a client today. :(
