Posted at 5:37 PM, Feb 08, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. -- Light rain and drizzle has developed this morning as a subtle upper-level disturbance passes over the region. The window for light rain will be between 4 AM and 10 AM, and the temperature will be very close to freezing for a few hours around sunrise. Be extra cautious early tomorrow as some light icing could develop on roads and sidewalks, particularly on elevated structures.

Skies will become partly cloudy by afternoon, with seasonally cool conditions. A cold front will move through Virginia before sunset Tuesday, bringing colder weather back to the area on Wednesday.

Shallow cold air will become entrenched over the Piedmont, and with increasing lift over the region, a wintry mix is likely to develop Wednesday evening. A significant combination of snow and ice is possible Wednesday evening through midday Friday over much of the Piedmont and Tidewater. There is still plenty of uncertainty regarding the depth of the cold air, but there remains a strong signal that a combination of wintry precipitation types is likely in central Virginia.

Some additional light wintry precipitation will be possible Saturday, with dry and colder air moving in on Sunday.
