A winter storm will affect the Norfolk, Va., area and much of the Tidewater of southeastern Virginia with heavy snow into early Wednesday.

Enough snow will fall to cause disruptions to daily activities and travel through midweek, even though the storm will head out to sea on Wednesday.

The storm will extend as far west as Richmond and Petersburg, Va., and to the northeast into the Delmarva Peninsula with a dusting to an inch of snow possible as far north as the Washington, D.C., metro area.

Temperatures will dip into the teens early Wednesday morning and will not reach the freezing mark Wednesday.

There is some good news for folks who dislike the cold, wintry weather.

Snow and ice patches will melt late in the week as high temperatures trend upward into the 40s and low 50s.

However, motorists and pedestrians are advised to be cautious as areas made wet during the day may turn icy at night.
