Periods of Rain Thursday

After a drizzly early Thursday morning, periods of showers will continue to overspread Central Virginia today as an upper-level storm system tracks through the Midwest. This same system is also overriding much colder air at the surface in other parts of the country, bringing snow and winter mix precipitation from North Dakota to northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. As this storm progresses east, it may also bring a heavy, wet snowfall to parts of Central Pennsylvania today and Friday. Winter Weather advisories and warnings are in effect for that region to our north.
Up to a foot of snowfall accumulation is possible by Saturday!
For us in Central Virginia, though, we'll merely continue with this overcast, cool, drizzly weather into the weekend. However, the highest elevations of western Virginia may get a few wet snowflakes Saturday.
