While it hit the mid 80s this past Tuesday, the coldest air of the season moved in for the weekend. Saturday’s high of 51° at Richmond International Airport was the coolest high temperature since March 26.
Most of central and western Virginia is under a freeze warning until 9 a.m. Monday. There is a slight chance the wind speed may stay up enough overnight to prevent lows from getting to 32° in some places, but the majority of the area will see freezing or near-freezing conditions. Areas well east of I-95 should stay a little above freezing. A freeze warning has not been issued for far western Virginia since those areas have already seen a full freeze this season.
Highs will rebound into the 60s on Monday and the 70s Tuesday & Wednesday. It will turn colder towards the end of the week, and near-freezing lows will be possible again Saturday morning.
