Posted at 9:00 PM, Dec 13, 2015

Richmond, Va. -- December weather in Virginia is indeed quite variable.  It has been as cold as -2° (December 30, 1917) and as warm as 81° (December 6 & 7, 1998).  Many years have been snow-free, but a handful of Decembers have picked up over a foot of snow.

This year, Sunday, December 13th registered a high at Richmond International Airport of 72°, which is 21° above normal.
