RICHMOND (WRIC)—The ABC 8 News viewing area was blanketed in several inches of powdery snow late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. In the wake of the snowstorm, Central Virginia will be greeted with mostly sunny skies and icy temperatures.
The snow is coming to an end, and the clouds will give way to mostly sunny skies on Wednesday morning. It will be cold, with highs in the middle 20s. Our skies will be clear and with the fresh snow cover, the temperatures will drop like a rock Wednesday night, with lows near 5 degrees.
Sunny skies will be around for Thursday and it will remain cold, with highs near 30 degrees. Friday will feature partly sunny skies, with highs near 40 degrees.
A weak weather system will pass to our west on Saturday, and that will bring us a few clouds and a possible shower later in the day. We will warm up on Saturday into the middle 40s. That weak weather system will slide over us on Sunday and give us mainly cloudy skies, with some light showers. Highs on Sunday will top out near 45 degrees.
Stay with ABC 8 News on air, online and on the go throughout this and other winter weather that will affect our area this season.
