Skies will be mostly cloudy today with occasional showers. The amount of rain should be light, with less than a quarter of an inch for most of central Virginia. Gusty north winds will make it feel rather chilly out there, as temperatures will only rise into the low 50s. If you think it’s cold here, think twice! Extreme southwest Virginia is under a Winter Storm Warning, where three to six inches of snow accumulation is expected.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed tonight, as we’ll be returning to Standard Time.
Drier air will move into the region later tonight, allowing for clearing skies and a return to sunshine tomorrow. High pressure will settle over the Mid-Atlantic Sunday night, allowing for much of the state to see temperatures near or below the freezing mark Monday morning. Despite the cold start, temperatures will still reach the low 60s under sunny skies Monday afternoon.
A warm-up will continue Tuesday and Wednesday as southerly winds boost temperatures into the low to mid 70s. A cold front will approach the region later Wednesday into Thursday, bringing our next shower chances followed by another round of seasonally cool air.
