RICHMOND (WRIC)—The ABC 8 News StormTracker weather team is closely monitoring a winter weather system that is bringing the biggest snowfall of the season and a wintry mix of sleet, ice and rain to Central Virginia through Thursday afternoon.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for nearly the entire ABC 8 News viewing area through 7 p.m. Thursday.
We will see additional snow accumulations on Thursday, with another 2 to 4 inches west of I-95 and 1 to 2 inches east and southeast of I-95. The snow will come to an end this evening and our skies will clear out, but everything will freeze, with lows in the lower to middle 20s.
Friday will start off sunny, but clouds will increase the second half of the day. High temperatures will climb into the upper 30s.
Another weather system will quickly move in Friday night and early Saturday. This system will bring us another round of snow, with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible for the region.
Sunday and Monday will be much quieter, with mostly sunny skies and highs around 40 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.
