RICHMOND, Va. -- The clouds are increasing over the area with a front moving in from the west. There will be the threat for a few showers during the wee hours of the morning, with lows will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

A few showers are possible early Sunday morning south and east of Richmond, but that will be followed by clearing skies and a decent amount of sunshine during the afternoon. Highs will range from the mid 60s to lower 70s.

Our next storm will bring a soaking rain to the area on Monday, and over an inch of rain is possible. Highs will be 45-50. There will be some snow/mix over the higher elevations of western Virginia.

Tuesday will be partly sunny and chilly with highs in the mid 40s.

Then a stronger storm will impact the region on Wednesday. This will be all rain for eastern and southeastern VA. The metro could start with a wintry mix before changing over to rain. Areas northwest of Richmond will likely see a wintry mix and the chance of snow. Far northern and western VA (near I-81) will see the biggest impact, and a moderate to heavy snowfall is possible there. Highs will be in the 30s northwest to the 50s southeast. The metro will see highs close to 40. Since this storm is still many days away, the forecast will likely change as the system gets a little closer. But as of now, keep in mind that Wednesday could be a bit wintry, especially well northwest of Richmond.

It will stay chilly the rest of the coming week, with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s/low 30s. Our next threat of precipitation beyond the Wednesday storm will come the following Sunday.
