Overall our weekend weather is shaping up fairly nice. A few clouds this morning from a weak disturbance moving east through the Carolina's will yield to more sun this afternoon. Skies stay clear into the day on Sunday however clouds do begin to increase late in advance of a system that will bring rain for Sunday night into Monday. Much colder air spills in from the northwest Monday afternoon and rain changes to snow showers Monday night. Any decent snow accumulations will be confined mainly to the Virginia Highlands.

High pressure over the region will result in a nice weekend for southwestern Virginia with seasonably pleasant temperatures. A few clouds this morning will yield to more sunshine by the afternoon. Generally clear skies will remain to start the day off on Sunday however clouds increase Sunday afternoon in advance of a weather system that will move in Sunday night.
Rain develops Sunday night and will continue into the day on Monday. Rainfall amounts of an inch or so can be expected. As the center of the weather system lifts north Monday afternoon, much colder air invades from the northwest. Temperatures begin to fall during the afternoon. A few rain and snow showers are expected Monday evening, with snow showers Monday night as temperatures continue to fall. Snowfall accumulations are only expected across the far western areas of Virginia and will generally be on the light side. Areas further east are in line for perhaps a dusting here and there.
Tuesday will be the coldest day of the season thus far. Add a gusty and brisk northwest wind, well, Welcome December. High pressure takes over for Wednesday and Thursday. Winds begin to settle down some during the day on Wednesday while temperatures, although still chilly, are not as cold. Temps recover back to seasonable levels on Thursday. Another storm system takes aim by Friday with more rain expected however the timing is still questionable at this point.
