RICHMOND, Va. -- Rain chances will increase this evening, and there will be some steady and heavy rainfall from late evening through the overnight hours. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Rain will exit around daybreak in the metro, and by mid-morning in eastern Virginia. Temperatures will drop into the mid 40s. Final rainfall totals over an inch are likely, with some areas picking up over two inches. Area rivers may approach or exceed flood stage by the end of the weekend. Clouds will break for sunshine on Saturday. It will be breezy with highs in the lower 50s.

Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 40s to around 50.

A surface low to the southeast, and an upper low from the northwest, will be in the area on Monday. If they can come together enough, we may see our first taste of wintry precipitation. There is the chance of some wet snow showers, or rain mixed with wet flakes. Highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. The surface low may be too far south to give us any decent precipitation, leaving us with little to no rain/snow. If all the ingredients can come together, chances of any accumulation are on the low side, and that accumulation would be on grassy surfaces, mostly northwest of Richmond.

Behind this system, it will stay chilly. Lows Monday and Tuesday nights will be in the 20s, and highs Tuesday will be in the mid 40s.

Highs will warm back into the 50s the rest of the week.
