RICHMOND, Va. -- Tuesday will be mild, with a cold front approaching from the west. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 40s and low 50s. The approaching front will trigger showers during the afternoon. Much colder air will move in as the front passes, producing a change to some snow showers Tuesday evening and night.
A light accumulation is possible, with a coating up to an inch in some locations. Most of this will be on the grass, but as temperatures tumble into the 20s Wednesday morning, icy spots will likely be an issue.
Wednesday will be a rather blustery day, as an Arctic front moves through with gusty winds and periods of cloudiness. Temperatures will be in the 30s, but wind chills will be in the teens and 20s. Lows Thursday morning will be in the teens, and highs during the afternoon will range from the upper 20s to low 30s.
We’re likely to see a bit of a warming trend Friday afternoon through the weekend. Highs will reach the mid 40s Saturday and the low to mid 50s on Sunday. Next week will start even warmer, with temperatures of 60°+ on Monday.
