RICHMOND, Va. -- We will see some clouds at times overnight. Lows will range from the upper 20s to the mid 30s.

Saturday will feature sunshine with increasing clouds. Highs will be in the low 50s.

A storm system passing to our southeast will affect the area from late Saturday evening into Sunday morning. Precipitation will start as rain, but will then mix with and change to snow in many areas Saturday night. Coastal areas and far southeastern VA will see rain for most of the event. If we see stronger bursts of snow, which will cool the ground, we could see snowfall accumulations of at least an inch or two, with the potential for some 3-4" totals. The computer models for Richmond have a range of snowfall from nothing to around 8 inches, but the average of all the models is around 2.4". The exact track of this storm is pivotal. A decent shift in track will either bring more rain or heavier snow. This storm is very tricky, and we will update snowfall accumulation forecasts over the next 24 hours.
