Rain and sleet will end overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, Feb. 13, which will be partly sunny and warmer with a high in the low to mid 40s.

A winter storm watch will take effect at 6 a.m. Tuesday and last through 7 a.m. Wednesday. Snow and ice pellets are expected to arrive after midnight Monday, and will probably change into freezing rain Tuesday as milder air pays a brief visit. The sky will remain cloudy through tonight, with a chance of scattered showers as an east-southeast wind returns. Highs in the mid 40s, lows in the upper 20s.

The areas in white and light blue will be the first to see the transition from snow to a mix.

The weather service predicts another chance of snow and freezing drizzle late Sunday morning with temperatures slightly above freezing.

Major League Baseball hot stove: Phillies acquire J.T. Realmuto from Marlins
Did they come close to agreeing on an extension? According to multiple reports, the Phillies have acquired All-Star catcher J.T. Nothing wrong with taking a shot, but teams rarely overpay under any circumstances anymore, not in free agency, not in trades.

There could be periods of heavy snow during this period, creating low visibility and slippery conditions for the afternoon/evening commute on Tuesday. Comfort-wise, the chilly conditions will linger throughout the day, with highs only reaching the low 50s. Wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour. Snow flurries are already falling in Franklin county as of 5 PM and will continue to become more widespread.

A wintry mix is likely to pass through the region before changing into rain along the coast Tuesday.

As the rain moves in Sunday evening and Sunday night, areas north and west of Richmond could see some wintry weather.
