Much-needed rain falling across Virginia

RICHMOND, Va. -- Rain will continue over the area until approximately 4 p.m., most areas will receive between .5″ and 1.2″ of rain.

Wednesday will be cool with high temps in the mid 60s. The cold front associated with this storm system will move through the area after sunset Wednesday, bringing a cooler air mass into the region.

Expect mostly sunny and windy conditions on Thursday as drier and cooler air continues to move into the region.

Friday and Saturday will be beautiful fall days, with cool nights and mild afternoons. Another storm system will bring rain to the area late this weekend or early next week. The timing of this system is being handled differently by the medium range models, which all pointed toward Monday as the arrival time over the past few days.

It now appears possible that we could see some rain on Sunday, but don’t cancel any outdoor plans yet. We’ll continue to update the forecast over the next couple of days.
