RICHMOND, Va. -- Southwest breezes will pick up this afternoon ahead of an approaching Arctic cold front. This will help boost temperatures into the upper 40s. As the front moves across the Blue Ridge, scattered rain showers will develop and quickly change over to a few snow showers during the evening. This will be a repeat of the scenario that took place back on Thursday afternoon with the initial Arctic front.
trong winds will develop behind the front, and it will be quite blustery overnight into Sunday morning. A High Wind Warning is in effect over the higher elevations of northern and western Virginia, and a Wind Advisory is in effect for the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. Wind gusts to 45-50 mph are possible overnight into the morning. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for all of central and eastern Virginia until 10 A.M. tomorrow, with wind chills at or below zero possible. Click here to read more.
