Posted at 11:18 AM, Jan 07, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. -- A storm tracking to our southtoday will produce some rain and snow showers during the day. Most of the precipitation will fall near and south of I-64, with better chances for steadier precipitation closer to the North Carolina border and across southwestern VA. Highs will range from the mid 30s to the lower 40s.

This system will exit to our southeast Friday night. There may be a secondary batch of precipitation (mainly snow) as the system departs. A light accumulation is possible near and south of I-64. If any accumulation occurs, it would likely be a coating to under an inch, with better chances of that happening well south of I-64. The best chance for seeing accumulation snow will be areas well southwest of Richmond, areas like South Hill and Danville, where an inch or more is possible. Winter weather alerts are in effect for southwestern Virginia.

The storm track will be refined further the rest of today into Friday morning, so check back for updates on the snow potential.

The weekend will be dry and seasonably cold. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s.

We are watching the potential for another storm next Tuesday, and that one may be a mix of rain and snow.
