This afternoon is wrapping up nicely with a mix of sun and clouds. As expected, much of the cloud cover has remained mostly south of the Mountain Parkway. Clouds will continue to mix out overnight, which could allow for temperatures to drop to the mid 20s overnight, but most should bottom out in the upper 20s/lower 30s.
One last dry, warm day will take way tomorrow, but wintry weather isn't far off. A cold front will swing into the Commonwealth Sunday night. Most of the precipitation will hold off until well after midnight Sunday, but once it moves in it will likely be messy. First, we'll see rain, which will transition to freezing rain as we near dawn. Then eventually snowflakes will mix in, and we'll stick with a wintry mix for much of Monday. Eventually, the precipitation will turnover to just snow. Expect around 1-2 inches of accumulation throughout Monday.
With a precipitation mixture like the one we're expecting Monday, the commute will likely be messy. Use caution while driving Monday. Snow chances will be off and on for the rest of the week until Wednesday. Some areas will gather 2-4 inches by the time Wednesday wraps up.
Thursday will bring a much needed dry and sunny day to the Commonwealth, then on Friday another slight rain/snow chance returns.
Have a wonderful weekend!
