A very warm Sunday, then some snow possible

Posted at 5:32 AM, Jan 01, 2022

RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be mostly cloudy overnight, with some areas of fog possible.
The next wave of rain during the early morning hours of Sunday. It will be breezy and very warm overnight with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.

Sunday morning will be rainy at times, with drier weather returning in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

A wave of low pressure will go southeast of our area Sunday night into Monday morning. Rain will return late Sunday evening and as colder air gets infused into this system, the rain will mix with some sleet and snow, and may turn over to all snow for a few hours leading up to daybreak Monday. Since the ground will be very warm and wet, the odds of any accumulations are quite low. However, don't be surprised if we get a good burst of snow that up to a couple of inches accumulate on the grass, trees and decks. The roads should remain wet. At this point, it appears we'll clear out somewhat quickly on Monday, but it will be a cold and windy afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 30s and low 40s, and wind chills will be in the 20s and 30s. There is a high degree of uncertainty with the current forecast, with the possibility we see little if any snow and a low threat that the system has a higher impact.

Monday night will be quite cold with lows from the mid teens to the low 20s.

Dry weather is expected during the midweek period. A cold front will bring the threat of a few showers Thursday night, which may turn to a brief mix before ending Friday morning.
