Crews monitor roadways for icy conditions after snowfall across Hampton Roads

(WTKR) - Crews across Hampton Roads are monitoring roadways overnight after snow moved in across the area on Sunday.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says crews are on stand-by and if spots start to refreeze , they are prepared to go back out and treat those spots.

VDOT crews also applied abrasives to I-64 ramps and bridges from the HRBT to New Kent.

A spokeswoman for the city of Suffolk says crews treated the city's bridges and Route 58 bypass with salt throughout the day on Sunday.

Some drivers told NewsChannel 3 that they were planning to stay off the roads by Sunday night.

"People should be concerned with the ice that's coming about, the ice is a lot more difficult to maneuver than snow," says Robert Jackson.

Most of the snow and rain will start to exit the coast through the mid to late afternoon, giving way to partly cloudy skies and cold conditions.

Live VIPIR Meteorologist Dominic Brown says we’ve seen quite a bit of snow falling across parts of Hampton Roads and NE North Carolina today and several areas have reported accumulations.

NewsChannel 3's Todd Corillo saw snow falling all over the Peninsula.
