RICHMOND, Va. -- The pattern next week still favors a rain-to-snow scenario for Central Virginia on Tuesday, November 12, chief meteorologist Zach Daniel said.

"Details will change in the coming days, so it's wise to hold off on any conclusions or assumptions this far out," he warned.

A strong cold front will move through the area tonight, with the coldest air mass so far this season moving into the area behind it. We’ll have a good chance for rain between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., with clearing skies from west to east between midnight and dawn Friday. Friday will be a mostly sunny, breezy, and cold day, with highs in the 40s.

Temperatures will fall into the 20s for the first time this season in Richmond Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday will be partly cloudy and continued cold, with highs in the mid to upper 40s.

We’ll see a nice warm-up on Sunday and Monday, with temperatures returning to the low 60s Sunday and mid 60s Monday. An Arctic air mass will move into the region on Tuesday, resulting in falling temperatures throughout the day.

Rain will be possible on Tuesday in association with the front, and the rain could change to snow before ending Tuesday night. Cold and dry weather is expected Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
