Cold air damming will last through early Wednesday over Central Virginia and that will leave us with a forecast that can be summed up in one word - "drizsmal."

Monday night, clouds and patches of rain, drizzle, sleet and even a few snowflakes will happen over us. Since lows will be in the upper 20s and the lower 30s, a few icy patches are possible in the area.  As we head into Tuesday, there will be a little storm off the Outer Banks that will keep the chilly damp weather in over us. Light rain is going to be on tap at times but highs will climb into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers.  Southwesterly winds will scour the cool air out and allow for us to warm into the lower 50s.   Thursday and Friday will be very nice in the area as highs rebound into the 60s.  Saturday should be around 70, but a new cold front will bring showers to us. 

Sunday through Tuesday of next week will bring a return to chillier weather over the region.
