CWS Forecast: Capital Region

This weekend will be a slight reprieve from the cold and stormy March weather pattern. Temperatures will be closer to normal with abundant sunshine across the Commonwealth, although gusty winds will be expected. Sunny skies will continue to dominate through Monday, but clouds will increase Tuesday as a storm system arrives from the west, which will bring rain and snow to most of the Commonwealth. At this point, there is great uncertainty as to the track and strength of the storm, but inland areas are favored for heavy snowfall, while areas closer to the coast are expected to mix with rain. Please stay tuned to the Campus Weather Service for continual updates on the storm.
