A weak area of low pressure riding over the area tonight will keep us mainly cloudy through early Wednesday morning. Most will stay dry, but especially across the higher mountains of SW VA in our area, we could see an isolated wintry mix of rain/freezing drizzle/snowflakes at times. A dusting of snow could occur at elevations above 3000 ft, but most of us won’t see much of anything overnight. We’ll just be chilly, with lows in the 30s. Wednesday will bring gradually clearing skies and cool high temps again in the 40s. Tomorrow night will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20s to mid 30s.
A brief warm-up is in store for Thursday and Friday before a stronger cold front brings another cool-down into this weekend. Cloud cover will increase throughout the day Thursday, but we look mainly rain-free until Thursday evening. Highs Thursday and Friday will be in the mid 50s to low 60s. Showers look especially likely throughout the day Friday and again on Saturday afternoon. Colder air looks to work in on the back side of the system into Sunday, so for now, at least some flakes may be flying around in spots late Saturday night into early Sunday. Stay tuned!
