StormTracker8: Sunny & cold today, snow by Friday evening looks likely


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — We will see mostly sunny to sunny skies across central Virginia today, but it will be a much colder day as our high temperatures only climb into the upper 30s.

Clear skies will be with us for this evening and tonight and it will be a very cold night with lows near 20 in metro Richmond which means many outlying sections could drop back into the middle teens.

The sunshine will continue for Thursday, but it will be chilly once again with highs only near 40.

Clouds will increase Friday as a weak cold front heads our way. Ahead of this cold front we will climb into the lower 40s. 

Snow will develop by Friday evening and Friday night as this cold front combines with moisture from the developing coastal storm.  That coastal storm will be a big factor for our weather for Saturday in terms of early morning snow, then strong winds which could create coastal flooding for all areas in the Chesapeake Bay.  A few inches of snow are likely for all areas along and east of I-95 from Friday night into early Saturday morning. But just how much is still a question.

Any snow will come to an end on Saturday morning and the sunshine will return during the day. It will be a windy and cold day with highs only near 32.

Sunday will be a sunny day but remain cold with highs in the upper 30s.

Looking ahead to the early part of next week we will see the sunshine for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with highs climbing from the lower 40s on Monday into the middle 50s by Wednesday
