RICHMOND, Va. -- A system brought some showers to the area Friday night, but the rest of the weekend will be just fine for area travel.
Skies will be clear to partly cloudy through Sunday. The nearest inclement weather will be some snowflakes across parts of West Virginia up through Pennsylvania, where a dusting may occur.
A storm system will bring much-needed rain during the coming week in a few different stages. The first round of showers will begin by midday on Tuesday and last through the day. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Rainfall amounts should not be very heavy, mostly likely a third of an inch or less.
There will be some showers early Wednesday, but we may get into a period of dry weather during the afternoon as highs reach around 70°.
A wave of heavier rain will last from Wednesday evening through mid-morning Thursday. Rainfall totals over an inch are possible.
We will dry out during Thursday afternoon with highs around 60°.
Cooler weather will return for the end of the week, and we will stay dry Friday into next Saturday. As of now, it looks like the Dominion Christmas Parade will be dry and chilly. Early morning temps will be in the mid 30s, but should be in the lower 40s by 10 am and the upper 40s by noon.
