RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A few days of milder weather is on tap for the area along with the risk of some rainfall. Tonight will be partly cloudy with overnight lows in the upper 20s, so it will be a little better than the past two nights.
Thursday and Friday will be partly sunny. There will be enough moisture around on Friday to give a low risk of some patchy drizzle or light rain, but it will not be significant. Highs will be in the mid 40s on Thursday and in the upper 40s to lower 50s on Friday.
For the weekend, Saturday will be in the mid to upper 50s again with partly sunny skies. Saturday night until midday on Sunday, you can expect to see rain over us. It will be mild overnight with lows in the 40s, and with a little sun on Sunday afternoon, highs will jump into the lower 60s.
That warmth will roll out of the area on Monday with highs dropping back into the middle 40s. We will stay in the 40s much of next week with lows in the 20s.
There is some concern for Tuesday night into Wednesday. The GFS model would give us the risk of some snow to our west on Tuesday night. However the CMC and historically more reliable ECMWF models don’t develop anything until it is too far east of us to cause any problems. Smartest thing to do is just watch this for the next few days to see if there is a dramatic shift.
