Weekend Warm Up: How high temps will climb Sunday

RICHMOND, Va. -- Arctic air was in control Thursday and Friday into early Saturday.  Warmer air continues to move in from the southwest, and our temperatures will jump quite a bit for the second half of the weekend.

High temperatures on Sunday will reach into the 60s across central Virginia, and we will have some lower 70s to the southeast.

This will be a significant change from Friday morning's frigid temperatures.

A storm system will spread rain across the area Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening.

Rainfall totals may exceed one-quarter inch before daybreak on Monday.

As the system departs, there may be enough cold air for a little mixed precipitation into Monday morning.  The chance of this is not very high, and would mainly occur southeast of Richmond.

Another disturbance will be to our southeast on Tuesday, and it may be close enough to give us some freezing rain or plain rain.  There will be a better chance of seeing precipitation southeast of Richmond.
