Big Storm System Bringing Changes This Weekend
Updated today at 5:31 PM
The big winter storm system marching across the midwest will impact our region this weekend. Temperatures today should reach the mid 70s. A cold front will cross the region tonight bringing much cooler air over the weekend. There will also be good chances for rain with the frontal passage tonight and through the midday tomorrow.
We may catch a little break in the action later Saturday and Saturday evening, but wet weather will return early Sunday.
With colder air in place, there may be some areas of mixed precipitation Sunday morning, from Williamsburg to Richmond, and for areas just east of I-95. Sleet and freezing rain will be likely along I-95 and areas west. There is potential for more significant icing over western Virginia and into the mountains. Most of Hampton Roads will stay warm enough over the weekend for rain.
Locally our high Saturday should stay in the lower 50s. Temperatures Saturday Night are expected to dip into the mid to upper 30s, and then climb back into the mid 40s Sunday.
Stay tuned to ABC13 and WVEC.com over the weekend for updates!
