Patrick Rockey's Live VIPIR Forecast
From record heat to a chilly rain. We've got big weather changes on the way for the weekend. A massive cold front will cross the region on Friday evening. Behind that front we'll see a 25-30 degree drop in temperatures, along with a chilly rain by early Saturday.
For most of us, the rain won't last all day. Things should taper off from north to south as we head into the afternoon. We could even see the skies clear a bit (briefly) in the afternoon. But it looks like rain will linger longest across Carolina.
Things get interesting on Sunday, as more wet weather moves in as temperatures linger close to freezing. We could see a brief period of freezing rain on the Northern Neck and the northern portions of Middlesex, Gloucester, James City, Surry and Sussex Counties. Any icy weather shouldn't linger long and we'll all see a chilly rain through most of Sunday.
Temperatures warm into the 60s on Monday, but the rain stays with us. In fact, it looks like we could be dealing with rain all the way into Wednesday.
