Live in Richmond VA. I'm a recent high school graduate who is looking to pursue a career in meteorology. Winter storms and the tropics fascinate me.

This will be brief, but we do have a shot of seeing some light snow tonight as a clipper swings to our south. Best chance is SW of Richmond but a few could sneak into the area late tonight into early tomorrow. Snow is already being reported in Farmville, haven't heard anything from Blackstone or Southern VA yet. The temperatures are in the mid to upper 20s, plenty cold enough for snow, and with dew points in the upper teens, we should have little to no issues with dry air, and precip evaporating before it hits the ground. I do believe that parts of south-central VA could pick up a dusting of snow if it's heavy enough, but accumulations look better towards the SW portion of the state. Give a holler on my blog if you do see any flakes tonight. Norfolk may also see snow tonight, their first of the season, and parts of southern VA haven't seen snow yet.... This threat for light snow will end by daybreak tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed snow lovers!
Have a great weekend!
