CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a mostly light snowfall over the region Thursday night, temperatures mainly stayed in the 20s to lower 30s Friday afternoon. With fresh snow, under a clear sky and very dry air, overnight lows will dip down to the single numbers for parts of the region!

Chilly sunshine on Saturday.

Tracking the next Cold Front due in on Sunday. As this front arrives from the west Sunday afternoon, temperatures will rebound to well above freezing levels. That means the next precipitation will be in the form of a cold rain later Sunday afternoon and evening.
