NORFOLK - A winter storm has moved in and harsh conditions are expected over the next 24 hours.

Temperatures began falling off Tuesday afternoon as north winds increased.

Snow is expected to continue overnight and will pull offshore in the predawn hours Wednesday.

Snowfall totals should range between 1 to 3 inches for much of Hampton Roads, with lighter amounts over northeast North Carolina and slightly higher amounts to our north.

The snow is only part of the problem. It will also be quite windy and bitterly cold. Wind chills may dip below 0° as winds blow 20-30 mph (with gusts to near 40 mph) and overnight lows dip into the mid teens.

Wednesday's high will stay in the lower to mid 20s, so whatever falls will stick around tomorrow and possibly a day or two after that.

Stay tuned to 13News Now and ABC13 for Storm Mode coverage of the winter event until the threats have passed.
