Another frigid night along with hazardous travel conditions can be expected for the Eastern Shore of Virginia through the Monday morning commute.

Arctic high pressure remains centered over eastern North Carolina tonight. The combination of a mostly clear sky, light winds and the snow cover will allow for maximum cooling conditions. Although not as cold as this morning, temperatures by sunrise Monday will range between 5 to 15 degrees above zero, with readings possibly as low as zero in areas with the deepest snow cover.

In addition, any melting of the snow that took place today will refreeze. Many secondary roads across central and eastern Virginia as well as northeast North Carolina, will again be ice or snow covered resulting in hazardous travel through the Monday morning commute. Temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing until around noon Monday. Motorists are urged to use caution while driving, keeping plenty of distance between you and other motorists.
