CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - With fresh snow, under a clear sky and very dry air, temperatures this morning start out in the single numbers and teens!

Chilly sunshine ahead on this Saturday. Highs will struggle to reach the mid 30s,

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. If by chance, any rain arrives early over the Shenandoah Valley then some brief freezing rain/ice is possible. Keep checking back for updates.

Less than a half inch of rain expected. Flooding is not a concern.

Rain exits Sunday night. There could be some refreezing as temperatures drop Monday morning.

Overall a quiet weather pattern next week. After a cold start, expect a little January thaw late week.
