Weekend Rain Potential

A strong storm system is headed toward Virginia this weekend, after causing an early season winter storm in the Rockies and High Plains since Tuesday. Rain should begin moving into the Commonwealth Saturday night and overspread the state into Sunday morning. Here are the projected rain totals Friday into early Sunday as a result of this system:

Virginia could see around an inch of rainfall accumulation.

This system will be cutting it close for the Trick-or-Treaters, but it appears that only a few light showers will be possible in Central Virginia Saturday and into early evening. If you live closer to I-81, though, rain chances will occur earlier. After 9 p.m., rain chances start to go up all along I-95 as the line of rain associated with the upper wave begins sweeping through the state. Richmond's best rain chances will occur from Midnight into Sunday morning. Here is the Richmond Saturday Evening Planner:
