RAIN AMOUNTS: Rainfall amounts may reach .75" to 2.00" through early Thursday. Rain on top of lingering snow and the saturated ground may lead to localized flooding issues from runoff. The Greenbrier River and Upper James River will need to be monitored closely.
Cold air will filter in behind the cold front this morning. The remaining moisture will transition to snow and sleet along the Blue Ridge Thursday morning. Snow has a chance to make it all the way to the Piedmont.
Based on our forecast we could see anywhere from a coating to as much as 2-4" across most areas, with higher amounts toward the Highlands and I-64 corridor of 4" to 8". See image gallery above for timing and possible rain and snow amounts.
The weather appears to settle down by the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies along with highs in the upper 30s Friday, but warming to near 50° by Saturday and Sunday.
"SPRING FORWARD" THIS WEEKEND
