Mild Tuesday; Then Reality Check

It's a chilly and cloudy start to our day across SW'rn Virginia as overnight rains have moved to our east this morning. The big weather story today despite the chilly start will be our temperatures as a mild SW/West wind will help boost temps well above the seasonal norm by the afternoon. It all changes tomorrow as we are in store for a reality check with winter weather looming. Rain develops tomorrow afternoon however as colder air returns, rain changes to snow by the evening and continues into Wednesday night. Snow ends early Thursday morning but it stays quite blustery with a stiff NW wind.

Please pardon some broken pages... We completed the move to new servers Friday night. Now, we are in a position to bring back some broken pages; however, getting everything back to "normal" is still probably takes through the end of January.

Forecast Discussion

Rainfall has shifted to our east overnight as we are starting off our morning on a rather cloudy but chilly start. Despite the chilly start, temperatures will be the main weather headline today as a southwest to west wind will help boost temperatures well above normal by the afternoon with some clearing expected.

The weather takes a turn back to more January like on Wednesday as colder air looms. Highs on Wednesday will occur around midday however fall during the afternoon as the colder air begins to filter in from the north. At the same time, low pressure along to Gulf Coast moves towards the Carolina coast by Thursday. Moisture increases and light rain develops during the afternoon, although the window for rain will be brief as cold air continues to be drawn in from the north. Rain changes to snow Wednesday evening and continues during the overnight with some light snow accumulation expected. The other headline will be the wind. As the low intensifies off the Carolina coast, winds increase Wednesday night and become quite gusty. Snow ends early Thursday morning and it remains quite cold and blustery. Winds finally diminish some Thursday night.

High pressure takes over on Friday and into the start of the weekend on Saturday. Another low pressure moves out of the Rockies towards the Ohio Valley during the second half of the weekend. The big question this morning is the amount of cold air that will be in place as this system moves through. Right now, the plan is a snow to rain/snow mix Saturday night into early Sunday morning before going to an all rain, although chilly rain, Sunday afternoon then ending as snow showers Sunday night. We'll fine tune this in the days to come as the details become a little clearer.
