11:30 a.m. UPDATE: Virginia State Police say they responded to 15 traffic and 18 disabled vehicles in the ABC13 viewing area this morning.

NORFOLK -- The snow and sleet started falling in the northern parts of the ABC13 viewing area overnight.

It was around 2 a.m. that you could see the white stuff on grassy areas and cars in Gloucester and Williamsburg.

That wintry mix will continue Monday with the precipitation becoming more scattered (meaning not as dense in its coverage). At the same time, the cold air continues to come in bringing more and more spots in the potential sleet/snow/or mixed zone.

Mike Treadwell, who lives in Gloucester, had to scrape ice off of his car.

"I also had it on my porch and in my yard," he said.

Many flights north from Hampton Roads were affected by the storm because snow was falling.  Click here departures and arrivals at Norfolk International Airport.

North Carolina will stay mainly rain with just a few areas of sleet trying to mix in. Southside areas from about Suffolk east will also be mainly rain but with more sleet or snowflakes trying to mix in at times. Because temperatures will be above freezing, any accumulations should be very minor and would be mainly on grassy surfaces.

The Peninsula and lower Eastern Shore will see much more of a mix of rain/sleet/snow Monday and get between a trace and an inch of snow with up to 2 inches if there is less sleet and more snow.

Finally, the Middle Peninsula and northern Eastern Shore was expected to change over from rain to a mix and then to all snow. Accumulations in those areas should be more like 1-3".
