Skies will continue clear this morning, and the day will be mostly sunny. It will remain cool with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Clouds will increase late tonight with lows in the upper 20s.
A storm system will slide to our south on Saturday and could bring an isolated shower or a few sleet pellets on Saturday. The best chance for this will be well south of I-64. Highs will be in the mid 40s. Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 40s to 50°. Winter begins Sunday evening at 6:03 p.m.
Another storm will track just to our east on Monday. It will be mostly rain for a good portion of our viewing area, however, we could see some patchy freezing rain early for areas well north and west of Richmond. Areas near I-81 could see some snow flakes mix in during the day. Highs will reach the mid and upper 40s.
There is the slight chance of a passing shower on Tuesday with highs getting back into the mid 50s. The next storm will bring rain to the area Wednesday morning through the afternoon. As the storm pulls away and colder air wraps in late in the day, a wet snow flake will be possible before the precipitation ends. However, the chances of that will be pretty low. Highs by midday will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s with temperatures falling during the afternoon. Christmas Day will be dry with highs in the lower 50s.
Our longer range computer models are showing signs of a colder trend in early January, but nothing extremely cold before we end December.
