A few flurries will continue to develop this afternoon and evening across parts of central, northern, and eastern Virginia. Temperatures will fall into the upper teens and low 20s by Thursday morning.
Thursday will be a sunny but cold day in the Commonwealth, with highs in the mid 30s, but wind chill values remaining below freezing due to a northwesterly wind of 10 to 20 mph.
A storm system will bring increasing clouds and a slight chance of light snow or flurries to the area on Friday. The current track of this clipper system will be pretty far south, giving southside Virginia the best chance for a light accumulation of snow. There is still a decent chance that all of the lift will stay south of Virginia, keeping us dry.
In short, the weekend will be very cold. The temperature will drop below freezing around sunset Friday and will not return above freezing until Monday afternoon, approximately 68 hours later. The coldest day will be Sunday, with lows in the single digits in some parts of central Virginia and highs in the 20s.
A storm system is still on track to impact the area on Presidents Day into next Tuesday. The track and intensity of the system, as well as the position and extent of the cold air mass are still up in the air, but a snow to wintry mix to rain scenario appears to be the most likely outcome at this point. I’ll continue to update you on the latest with this system over the next few days. -Zach
