PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — A system moved across the state Tuesday morning, bringing small round of snowfall to the Hampton Roads region.
Snow was seen falling early in the day, in areas including Franklin, Courtland and even Wakefield. The Southside and Peninsula saw increasing snowfall during the later morning hours.
The system moving westward across Virginia brought snow to areas around Richmond before hitting Hampton Roads. Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler says the snow is expected to be offshore and out of the area by the afternoon hours.

This clearing and temperatures warming up to nearly 40 degrees will likely melt whatever sticks to the ground. Roads are not expected to be heavily impacted by the snow.
Hampton Roads has twice been impacted by snow storms in 2018. A system that brought blizzard conditions to the region closed schools and created a mess on area roadways.
The second snowstorm caused considerably less impacts, but still prompted closures in the area.
