More rain and snow possible… It has been a soggy 24 hours for us and the rain continues to fall this morning. As temperatures will slip into the mid 30s this morning, we could see some of that rain change over to sleet/snow. The best chances for snow will be our northern and inland areas (closer to Richmond, I-95, and Maryland). Any accumulation will be limited due to the rain and warmer temperatures this week but a dusting on grassy and raised surfaces is possible.

Precipitation will taper off through mid-morning and skies will clear this afternoon. Highs today will only reach the mid 40s but it will feel colder with strong northerly winds. Winds will relax tonight as lows fall into the low 30s. Expect plenty of sunshine on Saturday with highs in the upper 40s, near normal for this time of year. We will see more clouds for Sunday with highs near 50. We are tracking another chance for rain and possible snow late Monday into Tuesday.

Today: AM Rain(60%), Snow Mixing In, Cold, Windy. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: N 10-20

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the low 30s. Winds: N 5-10
