region, we don't have the totals yet and they're are not real big for most of the region. by 4:30, we're pretty much -- 4:00, 4:30, over close to the dinner hour through the area. the eastern shore, little bit of light snow, and some moderate snow. more moderate snow around the wildlife refuge, the northern end of things there. nothing real, real big. it is not going to last very long. the last 15 or so minutes. anywhere south of the interstate, seeing some snow. we move on in and a little bit moderate snow there. other parts, steadier snow. we sought an inch and a half and
is not going to last much longer. this is just an estimate. computer estimates as to how much snow they have gotten. we did see half an edge. three quarters of an inch. all jumbled together. look at what is going on in virginia beach. a little bit heavier snow. we go to north carolina, around an inch. then the snow further to the south. tapering off the flurries. by the time the snow ends, here is what we end up with. half an inch to one inch, three to four inches further south in the viewing area. he gave us a little bit of snow. now comes the bad part. we could still see a flurry or two overnight but this is the northwest wind.

change over to a snow wintry mix before it goes to rain, back to a mix for the start of next week's things are looking a lot better out there. temperatures are in the 20's in the low 30's. 27 in hampton. 30 up in williamsburg. temperatures are expected to drop off into the mid-20's but it will feel much colder than that with the wind of their. despite the fact that we will see a decent amount of sunshine, the wind chills will be stuck in the upper teens to low 20's all day. it will be the coldest day of the week. keep a very close eye on that. you can find us on wavy.com. how are the roads looking, jen? jen: not so great. we have a new one on the traffic jam cam. 264 eastbound and it looks like it got muddy on the camera.
bridge, in my be in the final stages of clearing but it is causing delays. the other one that looks like it is wrapping up is here. this one has really been causing problems today. traffic on 64 causing big problems for folks trying to get to the hampton roads which tunnel. it looks like traffic is cleared up and they had 2 openings. residual delays because of that. not as much color change on the map here. on the peninsula there's still a big issue. clearly the westbound over to your right back several for you to jefferson avenue. you still have heavy traffic. stephanie: coming up, an apartment fire displaces seven people. we now know what caused the fire. tom: we will look live at
