Cold & Dry into much of next week ! Some Lt.Snow for VA tonight.

Cold and dry weather will be the rule for the Delaware Valley into much of next week. Highs will mainly be in the Mid 30's to near 40, and lows in the low to mid 20's. A weak Clipper will move well to our south later today into Sunday AM. This system will track from TN to the NC coast on Sunday.

A band of light snow will develop over the lower Ohio Valley today and move into much of West VA, Central and Southern VA tonight. The Blue Ridge mountains from near CHO south to the NW mountains of NC could see 2"-4" of snow accumulation later today into tonight.

Further east in the foothills and Piedmont of VA, a Coating to 2" is likely tonight. This includes Roanoke, Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Danville. The coastal Plain of VA will see mainly Flurries and a period of light snow, with a coating in a few spots near the Richmond area. All light snow and flurries should end by early Sunday AM, as the storm moves east and well off shore. Much of Northern VA north of Charlottesville to near DCA, will see some flurries tonight.

For the Delaware Valley, some cloudiness will move in tonight and into Sunday, with a few flurries possible in our southern most areas, such as Southern DE. A few Flurries are also possible from near DCA, and east to the Eastern shore of MD.

For Monday and Tuesday and strong NW flow of cold air will continue with brisk conditions and Highs in the Upper 30's. A few Lake effect snow flurries are possible both days, especially North and West of PHL. Skies will be Variably cloudy, especially in the afternoon and evening hours.

Temps continue cold for much of next week with continued dry conditions through at least Thursday. Highs will be 35-40 and lows 20-25 for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Take Care,
