WVIR - NBC29 News at Noon Weather

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -Rain showers fell across part of the area this morning. Rain amounts were greatest south of I-64 whereas areas to the north saw very little. Conditions are starting to improve everywhere this afternoon. Partly cloudy skies will take us into tonight with some patchy fog developing tomorrow morning.

The rest of the work week will be fairly quiet. A weak cold front will pass over tomorrow night, but little to no rain is expected from it. Aside from that, at least partial sunshine should be seen. Temperatures will slowly be declining as we approach the weekend.

A strong storm system currently looks to move in on Saturday. Right now, temperatures look to be cold enough at the onset of the precipitation to see either some snow or wintry mix before switching over to rain. Models are not in great agreement over the timing of this system right now. Details should become more clear in the next few days. Stay tuned!

Beyond that system, temperatures look to reflect more seasonal values or even dip below average moving into next week.
