RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Clouds moved into the region last night from a weather system sliding from Tennessee to North Carolina.
That system could bring some light snow showers to southern and southeastern Virginia during the early morning hours, but we are not looking for any accumulation. Those clouds will depart during the late morning allowing for sunshine and cold weather to build back into Central Virginia. At best, we will see our high temperatures climb to the middle 30’s, which is a far cry from yesterday’s 51 degrees. Our skies will be clear tonight and it will be very cold with lows in the middle teens once again.
Tuesday and Wednesday will feature sunny to partly sunny skies with highs in the middle 30’s on Tuesday but climbing into the upper 40’s by Wednesday. Another weather system will track to our south on Thursday, but this one bears watching as it might slide north enough to bring some light snow to southern and southeastern Virginia.
Mostly sunny skies will return for Friday and Saturday with highs in the middle 30’s on Friday and in the lower 40’s by Saturday.
Clouds will increase on Sunday and it looks like we will see some light showers in the second half of the day.
Steady rain will develop for Sunday night and Monday. Ahead of this rain weather system our temperatures will climb into the lower 50’s on Sunday and between 50 and 55 for Monday.
