Andrew and Samantha's Tuesday morning forecast

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
Samantha Roberts' First Warning Forecast: Today's High: 34°, Tonight's Low: 19°
 
We're headed for record COLD this morning! The record low for today (and for the month of March in Richmond) is 10°. We're already nearing that temperature, and will continue to fall through sunrise.

Secondary roads may be snow and ice covered as you head out and main roads may also feature a few slick spots. Use extreme caution when traveling

Unfortunately, your Winter coat will be your main accessory all day long. Highs will top out around 34°. That's 22° BELOW AVERAGE!

Otherwise, look for partly sunny conditions. Even though temperatures won't warm too much above the freezing mark, the higher sun angle we have in March should melt a good bit of snow, especially on main roads and surfaces exposed to the sun.

Another storm is headed our way for Thursday into early Friday. This could be a good sized coastal system, but the difference this go around will be the lack of arctic air. While temperatures could be just cold enough for some wet snow, for the most part it looks like we could be looking a cold, rainy storm.

A dramatic warm-up will arrive this weekend, with highs around 60° Saturday through Monday!
