Light Snow Overnight

Dry and Cold Saturday and Sunday
Posted at 7:28 AM, Jan 21, 2022

RICHMOND, Va. — Today was a frigid day in Virginia, and colder than any day in recent memory. The last time Richmond had a high temp below 30 was exactly three years ago, when it was 28 on January 21, 2019. The breeze kept wind chills in the teens throughout the day.

Lows tonight will range from the mid teens to the lower 20s.

A storm system passing well to our southeast will bring us some snow later this evening and overnight. Heavy snowfall will occur near Norfolk, where over 4 inches will accumulate. Areas south and southeast of Richmond have the potential for 1-3 inches of snow, with some isolated 3-4 inch totals. The metro may get a coating to an inch, with the best chance of that east and southeast of downtown. Areas well north and northwest will see little to no accumulation. Any leftover flakes will exit around daybreak.

Saturday afternoon will be partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 30s. Sunday will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. A few stray flurries are possible in the evening, mostly across northern VA.

Our next system will bring some showers on Tuesday. This may start and end as some wet flakes in far western and northern VA. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s.

Another shot of arctic air will arrive for mid and late week with highs in the 30s and lows in the teens.
