Nice dusting so far in Midlothian.  Didn't even expect to see a flurry today.

Same in the west end. I don't think any of the models were showing this either. Was suppose to be in the 40s today, not going to happen.

Could be a nice tracking week leading up to next weekend. GFS and FV3 showing SECS for our region.

 

 I’ll be hitting the links on Tue as it will be close to 70° here, and then focus in more on tracking that evening lol.

A lot to like about the GEFS but is it right? Don't have much hope for this weekend. Looks like more cold rain :thumbsdown:

I would have to agree... Mid week next week could be another story...

Looks like EURO is showing ice storm but I'm sure that will change several times. I'm just over this cold rain we keep getting.

We had our feast in December and it has been famine ever since.  I would be happy with just one more warning criteria snow but time is running short and model inconsistency this winter has ebbed my hopes appropriately.

Yep, looks like nothing but cold rain on the horizon. While areas just north of here do pretty well. Frustrating.

Same here. Would like just one more warning criteria snow before time runs out but it's not looking good. Ironic that our biggest snow of the season would have actually came in the fall!

True.  I am sure we can look back and probably correlate early snow for RIC is a bad sign for winter snow but it's probably so skewed because we have so many famine winters anyway.  Fingers crossed but once it's March, I am sort of done and ready for spring.  Easter is late this year so I am not going to turn down any snow but it's just not the same.

Along the lines of spring, I am actually hoping we have a decent severe weather season as it has been a while since thunderstorms have been consistent in the spring to early summer.

Expect WWA’s to be posted late tomorrow in RVA, with an outside chance of a WSW (watch) because of poss freezing rain on top of a couple of inches of snow Wed morning. Today’s model runs will help NWS decide.

 

No matter what, Wed morning commute is going to be rough, until the CAD is eventually scoured out of the region, later that afternoon.

PROB will see a WWA in most of the RIC area...  The sooner it moves in the better for the quick snow accumulaton IMO.. Prob mostly another sleet fest incoming until the rain washes it all away..

Hopefully we can luck out and it will be colder than precidted. The quicker the precip gets in the better. The way this winter has gone though it’s hard to get excited

No real surprise here...Only thing  I would change is by the evening commute Weds the main roads should be mainly wet from rain not ice. Of course the more north the more problems..

Eh, can't argue with them based on model output. 

Me thinks I got spoiled from the December blockbuster, now anything short of a warning criteria is just "meh" 

Timing will be tough for schools though, even though you get a switchover to rain, it likely doesn't clear everything up before your 2 hour delay option so I think Henrico and surrounding may have to make a call at 5AM tomorrow as not certain enough to make tonight although parents pressure about the 5AM wakeup from Jenks and blah, blah, blah, not enough time to plan may weigh in.
