Skies will remain mostly cloudy overnight, with a few flurries possible, but no additional accumulation. The issue for the morning commute will be black ice, as temperatures drop into the upper teens and low 20s by early Friday morning, freezing any untreated water from snow melt today. The rest of the day Friday will be mostly cloudy and cold, with a slight chance for a few flurries as upper-level energy slides just north of the area.
A cold front will move through Virginia Friday night, bringing us a cold start to the weekend. Highs on Saturday will remain at or below freezing in much of central Virginia. Conditions on Sunday will be a little milder, making it into the upper 30s and low 40s. A few showers will be possible late in the day.
Rain will become a little more likely on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs Monday will reach the mid 50s, but will likely stay in the 40s on Tuesday. We’ll see a big warm-up Wednesday with showers likely, and even the possibility for a few thunderstorms. By then we’ll be in the first week of March, and heading into severe weather season, although no threats are apparent at this time.
Have a great Friday, and Stay With CBS 6, We’ll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
