Rain will likely arrive around midday in Richmond, with a chilly rain hanging through the afternoon.

Here’s the mid-afternoon forecast. This is when Richmond could get some snow mixing in with the rain.

Wet roads are expected for most of Central Virginia. However, slippery roads are possible in the Advisory area.

Farther south and east for areas including the Richmond metro, this is looking like a rain event with potentially a few snowflakes mixed in.

If precipitation comes down heavy enough, temperatures may drop and allow a changeover to snow as far south as Richmond. Even if this happens, there would probably not be any accumulation in metro Richmond.
