Sunday could bring a few flurries or snow showers to some.

As the day progresses today, our mountain communities in the New River Valley and the Alleghany Highlands could see some flurries or snow showers passing through. We’re only looking at a 20 to a 30 percent chance.

Elsewhere, a mix of clouds and sunshine will be in store. Locations west of the Blue Ridge could also see winds in the 10-20 mph range at times.

High temperatures will climb into the 30s in the mountains and the 40s further east.

Into Sunday night, a few flurries or snow showers will be possible early – but again, limited to the mountains. Partly to mostly cloudy skies can be expected elsewhere.

In total, the western slopes could see a dusting to maybe an inch of accumulation possible.

Temperatures will again fall back into the teens and 20s across the region.

As we start a new work-week on Monday, we’ll keep some clouds in the region with temperatures comparable to Monday’s with highs in the 30s in the mountains and 40s in the east.

For Tuesday, some snow showers, maybe some sprinkles are possible across the region. More of us will remain dry than will be getting wet.

Highs will likely be in the 30s and 40s across the region, though locations along the Route 29 corridor could reach the lower 50s.

Wednesday is trending colder with 30s likely for most of us, though some mountain communities may struggle to get out of the 20s. Winds will be up a tad bit as well making it feel even colder.

We’ll be slightly warmer as we head into the end of next week but still below average with highs in the 30s and 40s both Thursday and Friday.

Yesterday, I mentioned the potential for a coastal system that was possible to wrap up the week. Models have backed off on that possibility. So, we’re looking dry as we head into next weekend.

So, to summarize, we’re still trending cooler than average throughout next week, though Tuesday will likely be our warmest day. Besides a few mountain flurries or rain/snow showers, we’ll be largely dry for the week ahead.

Enjoy the day!
