Cities in Hampton Roads and the Peninsula are in for a couple snowflakes and some rain Tuesday.

“We do have some cold air coming over the next 24 to 36 hours,” said Mike Montefusco, meteorologist at National Weather Service in Wakefield.

He said the rain would be arriving by mid- to late-morning moving through the Hampton Roads area.

“It is possible to have light snowflakes mixed with rain, especially Colonial Triangle and Tidewater region,” the meteorologist said. “No accumulation [is] expected.”

Montefusco noted there will be an increase of wind out of the northwest with 30 to 40 mph gusts on Tuesday and temperatures during the day will be in the 40s gradually decreasing to the 20s in the evening.

Wednesday morning will be in the 20s to the 30s with wind chills in the teens, he added.

“Certainly as you get into the next couple days, you might want to check on the ventilation,” Montefusco said and checking on the pipes.

“Be ready for some colder weather as you get into the mid-week period,” he added.
