Skies will remain clear tonight, and with light winds and dry air in place, temperatures will fall into the low to mid 20s by Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday looks nice for early February, with highs in the upper 40s. Come out and join all of your favorite CBS 6’ers at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo tomorrow at the Richmond Convention Center. I’ll be there from Noon until 2 PM.
Sunday will feature seasonally cool conditions and a few more clouds as a powerful coastal low skims the area. Some light rain will be possible in southeast Virginia, roughly along a line from Kilmarnock to Williamsburg to Emporia.
A deep upper-level trough will dig into the eastern U.S. early next week, bringing light rain and snow to the area Monday afternoon and evening. Light accumulations of snow will be possible across much of central Virginia by Tuesday morning, with higher amounts across northern Virginia. Snow showers will continue to be possible during the day Tuesday, with snow flurries on Wednesday.
A clipper system will bring a quick shot of snow to the area by the end of the work week, but the timing and strength of this system is still in question. The pattern continues to favor a strong storm system in the February 15-16 time frame, and the potential exists for parts of the East Coast. As with any such storm this far out, big changes in the model-depicted track and intensity are expected. We’ll continue to monitor it and let you know the latest.
Have a great weekend, and Stay with CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
