RICHMOND, Va. -- This will be our first completely dry weekend (not a trace or more of precipitation) since January 9-10. It will also be only the second dry weekend of the year thus far.

Tonight will be clear and quite cold. Lows in most areas will range from the mid-teens to the lower 20s, but some isolated temps near 10° are possible in our coldest outlying areas closest to the Blue Ridge.

Sunday will have sunshine with increasing high clouds in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

A storm system will bring rain to the area on Monday. This could start as a brief mix north of I-64, but even those areas will turn to rain. Highs will range from the lower 40s northwest to the mid 50s southeast.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with highs 55-60°. Wednesday will be mostly sunny and warm with highs in the mid 60s. A cold front will pass with no precipitation, followed by highs 55-60° on Thursday.

Some computer models are showing a storm in our area next Friday and likely lingering into Saturday, possibly with some snow for Friday's event. It is important to note that many models have little to no snow, and a few models are completely dry. We will continue to have updates over the next week.
