NORFOLK-There are more chances for a little snow this week.  

Colder air is settling in across the region this afternoon.

"We do have chances for a few flurries or snow showers today, especially this afternoon and early evening. At this time, only minor amounts are expected - less than as inch on grassy surfaces," says 13News Now Meteorologist Craig Moeller.

Moeller says the radar shows snow showers over parts of central and eastern Virginia, but the lower atmosphere is very dry so most is not making it to the ground.

Overnight, skies become partly cloudy. Lows near 25°. Tomorrow will be partly sunny with highs in the mid 30s.

A winter storm watch is in effect for the North Carolina Outer Banks tomorrow through Wednesday afternoon. Wintry precipitation is possible later Tuesday into Wednesday.

An area of low pressure is expected to develop along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and track northeastward through the southeast United States. Moisture with this system will increase over Hampton Roads Wednesday.

Right now, rain is likely near the coast, with the western half of the ABC13 viewing area more likely to get snow. As warmer air is drawn inland by the system, the snow inland should mix with and eventually change over to rain late Wednesday evening. and more rain is likely Thursday.

This is a developing system and changes to the exact track of the low could have major impacts on the forecast Wednesday.
