the moisture amkesmakes its way to the ground and we will see stove. this is a better chance of snow for the south side of a smaller chance of snow for the peninsula. i will show you what i expect in accumulation. the timing will be the afternoon through the early evening, and the biggest impact is what falls will stick, any evening commute could have impacts, as you go from virginia beach down into northeast north carolina. let's take a look at this. it looks very impressive. in hatteras. that is one occasion where the ground, and soon it will make it into dare county and the outer banks. up toward the eastern shore toward the peninsula, a few
i had one report of flurries toward langley. also on the south side can it looks like a couple of flurries trying to go, chesapeake into virginia beach. not expecting much from this now. you are seeing thick clouds. maybe some light flurries making to the ground. but that is it. the bands from sunbury into suffolk, and a few spots appear where there may be some flurries, virginia beach, just become a cape charles, and in western gloucester county some of it trying to make it to the ground. johnson town and cape charles. we will continue to monitor these areas and see if that serves to accumulate or make it to the ground. our computer model will go through time. it suggests the moisture will be so thin that it does not make it to the ground. i think it will make it in some spots.
precipitation northeastern north carolina. that suggests we will see scattered snow showers in hampton roads, at that time for 3:00. it picks up, too. very heavy snow possibly get into locations like randy, elizabeth city, currituck, and southern virginia beach and chesapeake. you could see heavy snow this. i've5:00, northeastern north carolina into chesapeake. north of here, i believe the wealthy snow, scattered snow showers and some flurries in with that. we go into 6:30, in case, a lot of the snow pushes to the coast. a little up on the eastern shore. some driving inland come and it will dry out after 11:00 tonight. we will go to mostly clear skies after midnight, and tomorrow we
with some strong winds and high temperatures will only be in the low 30's. that is what we have for tomorrow. snow forecast amounts, up to four inches in the purple, northeast north carolina except mainland dare county. one to two inches for the south side, norfolk, portsmouth, virginia beach, and just become an inland and the lower eastern shore dusting to an inch of store. temperatures in the upper 20's to low 30's, and later in the day temperatures will not rise up much. we will see snow, and tomorrow, dry and cold on sunday. an update at four clock. katie: taking a live look at driving conditions in hampton roads.

reason why hrbt was closed a few moments ago, but it has reopened. just a little congestion that you want to be aware of. there is a flyover of the area. not seeing too many problems from norfolk into portsmouth and the downtown tunnel. you can see a little bit of red and yellow in the opposite direction, but that is not whether related. just a little congestion at the midday. don: thank you. we have crews all over the area roads. katie: we want to take a look at our driving shot. the roads are still clear in the area but those conditions may get ready slick this afternoon as a storm pushes through the area. of course, we will take a look at what is happening outside and will let you know on the air and online at wavy.com. >> good to see that folks are

these are helping to create what looks like a lot of snow. if you look at the radar, you would think we are going to get it, but it has been very dry at the surface. it is not hitting the ground, but it will eventually. it has in hatteras. heavy snow coming down there. where you are seeing this bigger area of blue, that is where it will eventually start coming down. may start as flurries. then it will pick up into heavier snow as these deeper blues are coming in. it will take some time. same thing for elizabeth city. it will take a little while for things to moisten up, and that it will start to accumulate on the ground. you have the best chance of seeing the snow in northeast north carolina.
ground, again, it is dry, but short term. middle peninsula, same case. while. we had a reporter in langley in newport news reporting some news. just some flurries for you. northern neck, too. eventually, the bigger area of snow off to the west will try to accumulations. the computer models are picking up on the dry air, but there will be pockets where it does. that bigger area of snow makes virginia beach by 3:00. definitely a lot of snow falling then. maybe touching the peninsula. this is what we are concerned about.
scattered snow showers but wrapping up after that, drying out overnight. dry tomorrow, too, but it will be cold and windy. highs in the low 30's, wind chill's in the teens, even in the afternoon. one inch to two inches possible to the south. two inches to four inches possible in north carolina. just a dusting to an inch toward the peninsula, maybe up to gloucester. looking at the lower end of this range from the south side of. into the peninsula. two inches to four inches, we are watching the carefully. temperatures in the upper 20's in norfolk, newport news. some of those temperatures may drop this afternoon. it will be cold enough for this to fall as snow. the wind is not too bad today, but tomorrow, they pick up.
you can see where we have some of orange and red, especially along the hrbt. right now being reported as a six-mild delay. just congestion. no accidents reported. you can also see a little bit of congestion taking 664 over 264. another area where they have some construction going on. 264, downtown tunnel, elizabeth river tunnels has sent out an alert saying they have staff and equipment on standby to keep the downtown and midtown tunnel's and associated roadways safe. they have pretreated and have their crews waiting on standby for any spot treatment. you may have heard brandy and don talk about that bus crash. that is eastbound on u.s. 258 at
