We are seeing our first snowflakes of the season today, so of course we have 60° weather in the forecast later this week!
The snow isn't done with us just yet. At least some of us. The strong winds whipping down the Chesapeake Bay will give us a few more snow showers tonight and early on Tuesday. While we aren't expecting much accumulation, some forecast models suggest a light dusting is possible overnight and tomorrow morning for parts of the Southside. With temperatures down into the 20s tomorrow morning, that could make for a few slick spots.
Tomorrow will be bitterly cold and windy. Some of us will wake up to windchills in the single digits and we expect high temperatures only in the mid-to-upper 30s in the afternoon, despite sunshine.
But warmer and wetter weather is in store for the rest of the work week and the weekend.
We will climb into the upper 40s under partly cloudy skies on Wednesday, upper 50s with a slight chance for rain on Thursday, and low 60s with rain on Friday!
End it looks like the low 60s will stick around for the weekend. Right now we may see a little rain early on Saturday and again late on Sunday. Stay tuned.
