It is 6:30 Sunday morning and it is currently raining and sleeting in Richmond with temperatures at 35 degrees. Here is the timeline for the rest of today:
8 to 11 AM
Wintry mix of rain, sleet and wet snow. This will be the best chance to see big wet snow flakes. Temperatures will hover in the mid 30s and lower 30s across the entire area. The magic number is 35 degrees, which is usually the rain/snow line in these types of situations.
11 AM to 2 PM
Precip will quickly taper across the entire area. Temperatures will warm into the low 40s, which will melt most if not all of the snow. I’m expecting 1” or less across most of our area (click here for my latest accumulation forecast), with all snow sticking only on grassy surfaces and other things detached from the ground. Roads will remain wet but drivable.
