RICHMOND, Va. -- A wave of low pressure will be near the coast Thursday night into early Friday morning, and this will keep some precipitation going near and east of I-95. As temperatures drop, this will cause any leftover precipitation to mix with or change to snow. Surface temperatures and wet pavement will work against any accumulation, but there might be enough mix or snow to produce a light accumulation of a coating to an inch on mostly grassy surfaces.
The best chance of this would be east of I-95 and north of I-64. Lows will be in the low to mid 30s.
Skies will clear by mid-morning Friday and the balance of the day will be mostly sunny with highs in the 40s.
Temperatures will moderate over the weekend with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. The dry weather will last through Sunday.
A system will try to develop off the southeastern coast, but this will be too far away from us to have any impact.
A disturbance will swing through Monday evening into Tuesday with scattered snow showers.
This does not appear to be a significant thing, and if we see any accumulation it would likely be a coating to an inch or two at most. Our computer models have been suggesting a coastal storm will develop Tuesday into Wednesday, but the past few runs of the models are downplaying this and keeping the storm farther offshore.
As of now, the potential for this low to develop and for us to get a heavy snowfall appear very low.
