RICHMOND, Va. -- A cold front will move through Virginia later today, bringing much colder air into the region for the weekend. Highs will still reach the mid 50s this afternoon, but temperatures will struggle to get out of the mid 40s Saturday and Sunday.

Our next chance of precipitation will be Monday, likely in the form of a cold rain for most of the Piedmont and Tidewater. A light wintry mix will be possible north and west of Richmond. The precipitation will end Tuesday morning, with dry conditions Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.

Medium range models continue to suggest the potential for a nor'easter to develop next Thursday, bringing accumulating snow to the region. There is still a lot of time to analyze the data as this system is still a week away, but snow lovers have reason for cautious optimism.
