RICHMOND, Va. -- Arctic air will arrive Thursday, keeping temperatures in the low 40s.

An upper-level trough will swing through the area Thursday night, bringing a round of light snow or flurries to the area.

A coating of snow will be possible in central Virginia, which could lead to a slick morning commute Friday.

Another storm system will approach the area on Saturday, but the impact to the area is highly uncertain.

Models solutions vary from nothing at all to a decent snowfall for central Virginia.

The timing, track, and strength depicted by the model guidance will evolve into clearer and more reliable solution in the coming days.
