Cold start, milder mid week – storm this weekend


Cold morning for many with lows in the single digits for some. Temps
will warm into the 30s to maybe 40 for southern areas. Tonight will
feature the chance for some snow showers. This could leave a dusting
for a few. That area would likely be a Charlottesville, Spotsylvania,
Chincoteague line. Tomorrow will see high 3 to 5 degrees warmer with
more 40s south and upper 30s north. Wednesday warms another 5 degrees
and widespread 40s look on tap! The warmest day in a long time will be
Thursday where upper 40s to upper 50s could visit the region and melt
the ground. Next weekend is quite the challenge with highs back to the
30s and low 40s and a southern storm approaching. I do think many will
see rain, but sleet and freezing rain looks possible for valleys and
an initial mix of snow sleet and rain/freezing rain could be on tap
for northern areas. A turnover to rain does appear likely from what I
am seeing, but this could be after a good amount of snow. Rains could
be heavy and some flooding may also be a concern. Longer term a very
mild, even warm forecast looks possible with highs possibly hitting
the 60s for the area, maybe even a 70 in the south if the models are
correct. Too far off to be certain. All for now!
