RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Rain returns Sunday afternoon, and that’s the first of several chances for rain over the next seven days in Central Virginia. There may be a chance for a brief wintry mix too.
The next round of rain begins in Richmond Sunday afternoon with a chance for a wintry mix well northwest of RVA near Charlottesville. Rain from that storm should end early Monday morning.
A bigger storm threatens late Tuesday night and Wednesday, which will definitely bring more rain, but could begin as a period of snow, sleet. and/or freezing rain. That’s why Wednesday is a First Alert Weather Day.
The wintry mix potential could impact the Wednesday morning commute as the threat for snow or ice may persist into mid-morning.
It’s possible Central Virginia, including Richmond, could receive a couple inches of snow accumulation before the wintry mix changes over to rain by Wednesday afternoon.
Additional round of rain are likely for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this week.
