Fair weather sets up across the Commonwealth for Tuesday.
The disturbance from Monday that brought snow and light rain to areas mainly south of U.S. 460 has moved off toward the east. While another system is slated to impact Southwest Virginia late Wednesday and into Thursday, dry weather is expected for Tuesday. Clouds will decrease during the morning hours and mostly sunny skies will be overhead east of the I-81 corridor. The New River Valley and Alleghany Highlands will see a mixture of clouds and sunshine throughout the day. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 40s, but low 50s are possible in the Piedmont.
A storm system will stay south of the region for the middle of the week, but a disturbance will move in from the west Wednesday. We could potentially see some cold rain, sleet, and snow during the morning hours Thursday. It doesn’t appear that there is a lot of moisture associated with this disturbance, so it shouldn’t cause too many issues. If we do see any accumulation, it will be light and will possible mainly west of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Temperatures will reach the low to mid 40s for the afternoon.
We’ll be in between systems for Friday, but skies are expected to be mostly cloudy. A coastal system will bring the potential for precipitation overnight Friday and into Saturday morning. Temperatures will play a role in what we see falling from the sky. If enough cold air is present for Saturday, we could see more of a chance for wintry weather in Southwest Virginia. Right now, my forecast calls for few rain showers and the chance for mountain snow showers. Once again, this forecast is ever-changing and we will continue to keep you updated as models come in and we get closer to the weekend.
