RICHMOND, Va. -- The start of astronomical Spring occurs on Monday just before 6:30 a.m., and our final weekend of winter will continue our pattern of up-and-down temperature swings.

Highs on Saturday will jump into the 60s as a cold front moves into the area.  Thunderstorms are possible as the front passes by Saturday evening.

Behind the cold front, it will be colder on Sunday with morning lows in the 30s and afternoon highs in the 50s.  As some energy swings pass us to the northeast, there could be some flurries or snow showers.  The best chance of this will be across the northern and eastern Virginia.

Highs will get back into the 60s Monday into Tuesday before another drop in temperatures mid-week.  We are tracking some milder weather for next weekend.
