RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — After a brief period of sunshine yesterday afternoon, the clouds have rolled right back in ahead of our next weather system which is poised to bring us a cold rain today.
As of this morning, there is a freezing rain advisory up for counties to our west. Winds out of the northeast is locking in marginal temperatures near the surface which could provide for rain to freeze on contact to raised surfaces so be mindful of that in the early morning hours. Otherwise for the rest of us look for a cloudy, cool and damp day with light rain, high temperatures topping out near 40.
Showers taper to just sprinkles overnight tonight and through Tuesday before yet another much stronger storm system heads our way for Wednesday. The track of this storm will be to our west, an inside runner keeping us in the warm sector and you’ll certainly notice the temperature change.
With a gusty southwest wind we will see temps climb into the mid to upper 60’s Wednesday afternoon before a strong cold front moves through early Christmas Day. Rain will be heavy at times as well on Wednesday, totals likely over an inch in most areas.
We remain well above average in the temperature department through the end of the week and see another shot of rain on Sunday.
