The Monday night-Tuesday (Feb 2-3) storm, and then a small secondary system into Wednesday will most likely produce some snow (emphasis-not much) for Central Virginia, with light rain initially (late Monday evening), then a changeover to wet snow late at night into Tuesday.
Very warm temps Monday afternoon will eventually be overcome by cold advection behind a front, but it will take some time… this happening while a developing storm churns northward from near Florida. That storm should stay well offshore.
My feeling is that the opportunity for some very light snow is decent, although ground temps, even after the colder air arrives, will still be quite warm. The second system into early Wednesday may dust us with a little too.

UPDATE posted 2/3, 10pm: Computer and radar trends really backing off big-time on any snow, even southern Virginia. My gut feeling also telling me that this is a non-event for accumulating snow except for perhaps Virginia counties bordering North Carolina, and even that appears questionable. Morning daylight will illuminate if this is the case. Jim
