RICHMOND, Va. -- Tuesday will be mostly sunny and cold, with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Overnight, skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy with a low in the mid 20s.

A powerful storm system currently over the Rockies will spread rainfall over Virginia late Wednesday through Thursday. At least a half an inch of rain is likely over much of central Virginia, with some locations receiving more than an inch of rain. Shallow sub-freezing air will be in place over the far western Piedmont, Blue Ridge, and Shenandoah Valley, and the rain will freeze on contact in these areas. More than one-quarter of an inch of ice will be possible in these areas, which would constitute an ice storm.

Cold and dry weather is expected Friday through early next week.
