A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Richmond metro area, parts of the I-95 corridor, and points west for Friday morning.
Precipitation is advancing from south to north as a mix of sleet and snow roughly west of I-85, and a mix of sleet and freezing rain along I-85 and east. This mix of snow, sleet & freezing rain will move into central Virginia through the morning rush hour. Areas north and particularly west of Richmond will have a chance to see a very light accumulation of sleet and snow, likely remaining less than an inch.
We will see periods of rain through Friday afternoon, with more than a half-inch of rainfall possible. Rain will taper off from west to east Friday evening, and we will dry out just in time for the weekend.
Saturday and Sunday will be milder days, with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s Saturday, and in the mid to upper 50s Sunday. The cooler weather Sunday will be a result of an early morning cold front that will also bring a very slight chance of a shower to area.
The bigger warm-up arrives early next week, with widespread 60s on Monday, and low 70s on Tuesday. A strong storm system will move through the region late Wednesday through Thursday, bringing the potential for a rain-changing-to-snow scenario for central Virginia. We also continue to look beyond that toward St. Patrick's Day, which has shown some signs of another punch of cold air arriving that Monday morning.
Travel safely this morning, and Stay With CBS 6, We'll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
