Producer Meagan Williams reported seeing snow in downtown Norfolk just after 12 p.m.
It is possible the Hampton Roads area could see some more wintry weather this weekend. While Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler said in his Wednesday weather blog that a system forecast to arrive into this area by the weekend is largely expected to bring rain, that rainfall could change over into mix of rain, sleet and/or snow for a time.
