4:00 pm
minute. we're bringing you team coverage on the field giving you the latest information you need to now it's all about snow and safety so schools in virginia beach let out early on joe flanagan will have the story and the power of people who care. remembering a coach who made his mark the news in four starts right now so i'm loading in full effect. we're looking at a winter storm warning in north carolina advisory in hampton roads leasing some flakes and snow on the sand in virginia beach from our skyview at the dq and seventy and atlantic just as you predicted if you're leaving early gonna get caught in some messy slice yet but i think there's a little less on the roads than we expected as a notice know is exactly as we expected i guess partly because they treated it but you can see and for example this picture
4:01 pm
lots already getting quite a bit of white showing up on them but when you get onto the actual roadways we don't have a lot the other good news is it's not gonna last all that much longer if you're out franklin or even into western areas there of isle of wight much of western suffolk nothing more than a few flurries are going to come through here over the next couple of hours. all these dark dark pocket sliding to the east of things working out as we had said yesterday with the dry air we're going to continue to watch again. the snow moving out we had the dry air earlier and that's why we said a lot of it would be on make it down to the ground so we were going much lower amounts than anybody else and seems to be working out that way with the again northern areas seeing maybe a light dusting but generally a lot of flurries we get down to sort of of southern newport news hampton you see a little bit more these darker colors
4:02 pm
there and then down into south side starting to see some of these pockets where it's just very light precipitation although right here over downtown we still have it starting to fire up just a little bit down in north carolina some of the heavier areas but the really have your stuff has tended to be south of the albemarle sound and you still have some that you have to go through over areas around manny as some of those locations the outer banks so the snow ends in a match or at least the steady stop in the next two hours in some spots in the next hour. watch for slippery spots overnight especially elevated things like bridges and overpasses that kind of thing the secondary roads that weren't treated are going to have a little bit of an issue and then finally can tell how heavy is snow is by the kinds of visibility is that you're looking at in hampton quarter mile that's actually heavy snow half a mile is more moderate snow and one mile
4:03 pm
moderate with two miles or two and half miles vegan pretty light snow so we have these pockets getting ready to move out the good news is it doesn't last all that long or the bad news is and the flesh that out there and as the temperatures drop could cause still some road problems this evening a lot more coming up in just few minutes i to north carolina customers made their way to hardware stores to stock up for their own personal snow cleanup or cane shows is how people make sure their storm ready to snow has begun to fall here in katy hog dare county and the whole can see at the three inches of snow take a look at the roadway fear not too bad and cdot has already begun pre treating the roads they handle a lot of the snow clearing for the county and some locals are also getting ready. many of them coming to ace hardware store stocking up on salt and some shovels they hope they don't get too much snow because getting around to be pretty hard in a town that doesn't even own a snow plow this area is in a winter
4:04 pm
the locals are getting ready for this winter weather in our reporting in kitty hawk air came thirteen years now i don't think you hit the road large school district is watching the storm and the clock virginia beach is one of the distance that decided to close early. they're concerned about two s words right now snow and safety but think about can is life force in virginia beach the case no space no now you mentioned those two great word snow in safety. that's exactly what it was all about today as we look to virginia beach blvd right now this has been coming down for couple of hours but like jeff said doesn't seem to really be sticking ard on the roadway itself. earlier today we were at princess anne high school as they dismissed early on me it was eleven thirty five in most schools in virginia beach let out early on this friday. students seem to be in an upbeat mood because it was friday after all they
4:05 pm
they were off on monday to do what we often use the site of the beaches with eleven thirty five and text are being sent all over the place there is just how weak the thirty five. typically there was a rush to the bus when the bell sounded the faculty that we spoke to were pleased but they kept their game faces on and declined a chance to go on camera and express their feelings but it was easy to find students who want to talk about this snowy early school dismissal if they think the school may have acted too soon to shorten this day. oh yeah the big day this lie not even a hint of snow right now playing doesn't make me no nevermind already re yeah school buses ran their normal routine even though they were nearly three hours early for this home delivery driver we spoke to was glad things turned out this way but i was telling him i'd add a comment about home early to make up the day we didn't win it all for today from spring break or
4:06 pm
we so city schools acted on behalf of snow in safety and public works crews are prepared to act in case they're needed. pretty much good shape with a lot of analysis going to be the next six seven hours monitoring what the weather's doing see the forecast is back out here live you can see the snow sticks a whole lot better to the grass than it does to virginia beach boulevard that's a good thing i think coming up at five more on those two s's snow and safety will add one more schools and just chest that was the third one and it was evident five reporting live in virginia beach all messed up in the snow joe flanagan back to you guys aren't they so one north carolina was in the most snow from the storm in our region with a few inches in the forecast and snow already starting to blanket the ground crews are taking action. jenny lee joins us from elizabeth city
4:07 pm
see it snowing pretty hard and fast here in elizabeth city but as far as the roads go to actually look pretty good right now you can see just how much has accumulated by looking at the grassy areas where the snow was actually sticking but as far as the roads go once the snow hits the pavement. justin immediately melts. that's because and cdot was out here yesterday pre treating these roads with brine which is simply just a mixture of water and salt. now once this snow does actually start to stick to these roadways publics works public works will send both of their salt trucks out to the bridges and overpasses person and the primary and secondary roadways until the city actually has a brand new salt truck that got just a couple of years ago before that it only had one a salt truck to cover the entire city so as you can imagine his new truck has really been a great help for them over the past couple of years now as far as supplies go until they had plenty of sand and salt to
4:08 pm
but if we run out for some reason and cdot has backup supplies for then you also have crews on call so better be coming out taking her out please stay off to rome as much as possible so that we can get into out of mom also told that the city has three private contractors on standby just in case they need to plow the streets until we get more than four inches of snow no call those contractors for help because the city does not have any plows it only has salt trucks so that's pretty much the story here in elizabeth city right now the roads look okay but that could change very soon once the temperature starts to drop for now reporting live in lisbon city i'm jenny lead thirteen years now and want to be really careful outside this weekend especially with your kids be sure to tell them not to wander on to any ice for my new children's health and ponds that may

4:14 pm
students became ill and or sign is college. they reported symptoms of a stomach infection. many students started to get sick tuesday night the school temporarily closed in all the cafeterias were close but health officials are unsure if it's a food borne illness or transmitted from person to person right now the school was going through a deep cleaning. we're also taking some proactive measures to make sure the residence halls and high traffic areas are being cleaned as well with obviously special attention being paid to the areas where students have been sick over night classes are scheduled to resume on monday are ready lets go into storm mode here look at the back edge of this system in many many spots it is about over the snow still here cross outside especially the farther down south to get the chesapeake in virginia beach little bit still up
4:15 pm
definitely some heavier stuff still bow across areas of the outer banks in sort of east central or interior sections there just one of north carolina just west of the outer banks but putting it all into motion. we had more snow for hours before it started falling all the way in making it to the ground we had talked about that yesterday again the good news is that we're not seeing as much on the roads right now the twenty seven degrees light light winds and the southeast are going to ship pretty quickly this evening out of the northwestern really pick up a look at a beautiful sunrise this morning some brilliant colors out there some partial sunshine and then the clouds began to think again and our itinerary can start to see some of that snow one thirty two o'clock and then the snow gets heavier at times and the visibility is obviously going down everybody right now in the twenties but i guess partly because they treated the roads were not seeing the forecast has been perfect but we're not seeing as much taking on the roads as maybe we had fought so that is the good news still
4:16 pm
this evening as the temperature falls a little bit and as the snow pulls out especially on the bridges in the overpasses the secondary roads. watch for some that black ice and very slippery conditions. so there's everything clearing out a little bit later on as we said over the next hour to two and then by morning nothing more than a stray flurry cross the eastern shore a little bit of day affect temperatures tomorrow are going to struggle to even get up into the lower thirties and then tomorrow night down into the teens that will feel even colder than that and then will continue to watch for right near the coastline maybe on sunday especially for north carolina a little bit country if it goes north northeast will definitely see some benefactor acre ocean effect across the outer banks i have not touched this since yesterday this is the exact map we showed you and at one point we were all conversing and texting back and forth and sing with these people getting these numbers up you know two or three inches here in the metro area we don't see it are we missing something. we were
4:17 pm
happen that we were leaning toward the lower part of the ranges here because of the very dry air that has worked out absolutely perfectly with more on what happened and why this ended up working out good i should explain supplication me and you know and speaking of that dry air it was really the demise of this system we had the snow falling a lot earlier this morning when i came in we actually had two points which actually measures the amount of waste or the atmosphere they were in the single digits as we started to move into the afternoon would start to see the dew points climbing so that actually moisten up the atmosphere. i just a little bit so when faced with the dry air and place them into the new points climbed into a battle out the snow to actually make it down to the ground and that's what we've been saying really late afternoon. right now is continuing to see the snowfall across the region but the system will push out of there pretty quickly and that means some very cold air moving and joe have won. i just have more on that. well joe will to lead
4:18 pm
to the viewer on the early morning show. you can really see the effect of the storm and how it pulled out down or south as expected and how the heaviest of that precipitation on the brighter colors tended to be down to our south spine forecast for tomorrow says a high of thirty one degrees with sunshine for today we said snow starting before three pm we actually saw a light snow almost everywhere between one and two and then officially reported heavier snow at the airports both of them one at two forty six and won it two fifty one i believe it was so that now makes three forecasts in a row for tonight evening snow and being fairly quickly watch out for the slick roads though mostly sunny tomorrow high thirty one or thirty two windy and cold it'll feel like the twenties and then maybe a tiny bit of a effect especially the outer banks or eastern shore on sunday twenty seven for the high and then a little bitter winter weather possible in fact likely i would say a monday before turns to rain monday afternoon monday night and

temptress finally start to climb again guys aren't they set up next a wonderful tribute and in some cases regina it's more than twenty (male vo) across america, people like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza . for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal.
4:20 pm
he said victoza works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. (male vo) victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck.
4:21 pm
including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need, ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza . it's covered by
