RICHMOND (WRIC)—The ABC 8News StormTracker weather team is closely monitoring a system that is expected to bring light rain and a dusting of snow to Central Virginia on Tuesday, March 25.

On Tuesday, a weather system will develop off the Delmarva coast that will bring some mixed light rain and snow to Central Virginia. Accumulations will be kept to a minimum, with up to an inch in and across the Richmond metro area, while areas north and west could see up to 2 inches, especially out in the counties of Louisa, western Goochland, Culpeper, Orange and the City of Fredericksburg.

Wednesday will be sunny and windy.  That storm off the northeast will reach its maximum intensity and will funnel strong NW winds down into the area.  30-40mph gusts are possible even here, with highs in the lower to middle 40s.

Wednesday night the winds die down, and with clear skies it will get cold as lows fall into the lower 20s.  Thursday will be sunny with a high back in the 50s.  For the start of the weekend, highs will climb into the upper 60s and the lower 70s.  However, it will be partly sunny with a chance for showers and thunderstorms as a cold front stops in.   Sunday through early next week will be fair with highs in the low to mid 60s.
