RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —All eyes are now looking very closely at a looming winter event for Sunday here in Central Virginia. As discussed yesterday and expected, the models have shifted to the north with the track of the storm.
This would set us up for a winter storm over much of the area. As you look at the GFS model which is what is being shown here, the storm does come right up over Virginia, so we are looking at a possible combination of snow to the west of Richmond and a snow/rain mix for the I-95 corridor to the east.
This would start on Sunday morning.
Reach its peak during the middle of the day.
Wind down during the evening hours.
THE TRACK OF THE STORM WILL BE THE ABSOLUTE KEY TO WHAT HAPPENS. 60 MILES EAST/WEST WILL CHANGE WHO GETS WHAT DRAMATICIALLY!!!!
Understand that is forecast will be in flux over the next few days. Thursday morning is when the short-range computer models will add more information on for us. Friday is when the high resolution models will come into play.
