#Snow in the forecast – especially central VA

We will have a cooler day with highs in the 40s to close to 50 in the south. It will be cloudy. Some areas along the coast are seeing rain showers as well.

Tonight we start to see a clipper’s influence and areas from Roanoke to Charlottesville and across the central part of VA could see 1 to 2″ of snow with some local amounts near 3″ in higher elevations. Areas across the southern half of VA may see some flakes and maybe up to 1/2″ of snow on the grassy areas! Pinpointing the highest snow band has been a bit of a challenge. Highs tomorrow will only be in the low and mid 40s for many. Areas up to the MD/VA border MAY see a few flakes, but not much precipitation north of teh Fredericksburg area. May be able to put out a map later today. In general, higher elevations to see the higher 1-2″ and on grass. Also, areas where snow starts before sunrise. Also, snow is not forecast to shift northward up into the MD and DC areas at this point.

After the cold Monday, some warming Tuesday by about 10 degrees, another 10 for Wednesday, and then 5 degrees of so for Thursday and Friday as temps soar to the mid 60s and mid 70s.

Rain and a bit cooler for the weekend.
