CWS Forecast: Capital Region

The persistent wintry pattern will briefly come to an end this weekend. A ridge will build along the East Coast, bringing much above normal temperatures across the Commonwealth through Monday. Monday will be the warmest day with temperatures reaching 50 degrees in the Southeast region. However, a storm system will cut to our west, which will bring periods of rain to the Commonwealth Tuesday. Some snow on the back-end is possible for the Western zones, but rain will still be the dominant precipitation type. A cold front will then pass through the region, which will end the January thaw.
