Pinpoint Weather: Cold start to the weekend, rain possible late Sunday

Weather Blog

Overnight lows will be sub-freezing throughout Western Virginia tonight. Winds are expected to be light, so not much discussion about wind chill values tonight.

Saturday will be mostly sunny to start but I do expect to see some cloud cover late in the day. The temperatures will struggle to get past the 50° mark in most areas. Time to bundle up as we may have seen the last of the mild weather until the Spring.

Sunday is what I like to call the day of transition as clouds will move in during the afternoon ahead of another cold front that will arrive overnight into Monday. The timing of the next rain event is a bit tricky, but most models are timing the rain to start late Sunday in the mountains and progress across the area overnight.

The rain will be lingering in the Piedmont early Monday, then head toward the coastal plain before noon. There may be a mix of rain and snow in the high country, but the temps will be mild enough to keep the precipitation from freezing.

Another cold front will follow in the heels of the Sunday front and arrive just a few hours behind the original front. This will plow in another round of dry and cold air that is expected to last through the workweek.

Temps will be in the 40s for the first half of next week, then moderate a bit by Thanksgiving.

Stay Safe,
