RICHMOND, Va. -- Upper-level energy diving southeastward out of Canada today, will provide strong lift over the Mid-Atlantic.
Rain will develop across southern Virginia this morning, with some mixed wintry precipitation possible at times along the northern edge of the precip. Accumulating snow and/or ice is not expected. Skies will clear later this afternoon with a high in the lower 40s.
Cold and dry weather is expected in the wake of this system Thursday. A warm front will move through the area on Friday, bringing us a low chance for rain, and setting us up for near-record warmth on Saturday.
Strong ridging and associated deep southwesterly flow will boost temperatures into the mid to upper 70s Saturday. A cold front will bring showers and isolated storms to the area Saturday night into early Sunday, followed by a more seasonally cool air mass.
Next week will feature dry and sunny weather with a gradual warm-up. Highs will return to the 60s by Tuesday.
