Posted at 10:18 AM, Feb 19, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. -- The storm system that brought an extended period of wintry weather to Virginia has moved well east of the area, with clearing skies and drier air in its wake. With temperatures dropping into the low and mid 20s by morning, icy spots will develop on untreated roads. Be very cautious if traveling early Saturday morning. The rest of the day will feature partly cloudy, breezy, and cold conditions, with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s. Sunday will be another chilly day under mostly sunny skies. Lows will reach the teens and low 20s Sunday morning.

A quick moving storm system will bring rain to the area on Monday. Much warmer weather is expected Tuesday through Thursday, with widespread highs in the 60s. A cold front will move through the area Thursday into Friday, bringing highs back into the 40s.

Medium range model guidance continues to hint at the potential for snow late next week. As with any potential storm a week away, very little stock should be placed on its development, as model reliability in that range is very low. We’ll continue to track it, and will keep you updated.
