RICHMOND, Va. -- Wednesday morning will be mainly sunny, but clouds will increase as a disturbance approaches the area from the west. Some flurries or light snow showers are possible Wednesday evening and night. Highs will be in the upper 30s.
We’ll stay dry and chilly on Thursday, but our next storm will arrive on Friday. The computer models are still trying to get a handle on the exact track of the system. There probably will be enough cold air around Friday morning for some snow or mixed precipitation, but we should get enough warm air to change over to rain for the metro and points east/southeast. Areas north and west of Richmond may still see a mix, with continuous snow possible in the mountains.
Afternoon/evening highs will be in the upper 30s and low 40s. As the storm slides off the coast, the cold air will regain control, and the precipitation may end as some snow on Saturday.
It’s still too early to get locked into any particular solution with this storm, so don’t allow various online forecasts get you into panic as of yet!
Keep in mind, the storm is four days away, and a shift in storm track of just 50 miles will make a huge difference in the types of precipitation and duration.
