It was 71° at RIC yesterday, and we're talking about snow tomorrow morning. It's unlikely we get any more than a dusting of wet, slushy snow on the roads in Richmond, but areas north and west of Richmond could get an inch or two. This, once again, will depend on how hard the rain/snow is coming down. Either way, I'd be prepared for a slower than normal commute to work.
How can we still get snow on St. Patrick's Day you ask? Well that's not all.
Looking way ahead in the computer models - Tuesday March 26th - there are signs of a significant winter storm. Keep in mind that anything more than 3 days out in the models is far from a guarantee. 10 days out - very unlikely this comes to fruition.
This is just a sign that Winter doesn't want to go away just yet. We expect below average temperatures through the end of the month (image from Climate Prediction Center below).
As for the potential snow storm... we'll just have to wait and see. Don't get your hopes up for snow though, even though most "snow lovers" are even saying they're ready for Spring. Snow is difficult to come by in late March. Just for fun - here's the top 10 snow events in March in Richmond from the National Weather Service Wakefield.
