FIRST TO ALERT: Rain moves in for the weekend. Latest timing here

Monday, 20 Nov, 2017

Slight rain chances arrive after dinner Saturday evening with the best rain chances after 7 or 8 p.m in the New River Valley, and even later than that east of the Blue Ridge in Southside and Central Virginia.

The morning fog risk will be present Friday and Saturday morning. Winds could gust up to 35-45 miles per hour throughout the day Sunday. The chance for precipitation with this front is not zero but will be mostly confined to far northeastern Oklahoma-southwestern Missouri and northwestern Arkansas in the form a few showers. While it doesn't look like a big hit of snow, there will be localized accumulation from the lake effect, especially Sunday night into Monday morning.

A decent looking Friday with highs in the lower 50s and mostly cloudy skies. Strong north winds around 25 miles per hour are expected.

Wind, rain and snow are moving into the area Friday afternoon, sticking around until after the Wisconsin-Michigan football game on Saturday, as well as affecting the high school football championships on Friday, both at Camp Randall Stadium.
