StormTracker 8: Clearing skies and cool tonight

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – The last of this system has pretty much cleared out of the area and we will see some partial clearing as we head through the rest of the overnight hours. Low's will dip to the low 40s for Metro Richmond and the upper 20s for more rural areas. Winds remain light out of the North.

We wake up to a few peeks sunshine on our Sunday morning, enjoy it while you can, because clouds build in quickly. By the afternoon we're looking at overcast skies with the chance for some spotty showers.

Those rain chances are better through the afternoon and evening as temperatures reached the lower 40s. 

All of the showers clear overnight and that leads to some partly cloudy skies on our Monday morning. Temperatures will warm nicely through the day, reaching the upper 50s or 60-degree mark. Winds are light through the day, becoming stronger through the afternoon.

Tuesday also has some partial clearing across the area, but temperatures are closer to seasonal averages. Highs in the upper 40s will feel mild with lighter winds across the area. Clouds increase through the second half of the day with a winter system moving in overnight.

We wake up on Wednesday morning with chances for some snow and ice across the area. This could become an issue for the morning commute, and we are StormTracker8 Weather Alert because of this. We will see it all switched back to sleet and then rain as we head through the midday hours. Showers linger through the afternoon and evening as temperatures are in the middle 40s. 

Spotty rain chances stick around into Thursday morning with clouds lingering through the afternoon. Temperatures are a bit warmer reaching the middle 50s through the second half of the day. 

Friday also has spotty showers in the forecast for the day. Expect to see overcast with the rain through the afternoon and evening. You’ll want to keep the rain jacket or umbrella handy through majority of the day. Highs reach the lower 50s.

Saturday begins the weekend with, you guessed it, more spotty showers across the area. Rain is expected late in the day with overcast skies. Temperatures will reach the upper 50s through the afternoon with winds remaining light.
