Tomorrow's Snow/Colder Weather

The arctic front set to move through during the day tomorrow is clearly visible on radar right now, bringing a decent swath of precipitation from the upper plains into the Great Lake's Region.

The arctic temperatures are visible behind it as well.  Many locations across Virginia have the chance at setting record daily mininum day time high temperatures on both Tuesday and Wednesday.  For Wednesday, the current records for a few cities are:
ROANOKE: 38 IN 1976
DANVILLE: 41 IN 1968

It's also likely that we will see widepread lows in the teens Wednesday night across western areas, with 20s for everyone else east of the Mountains. As for the snow, winter weather advisories have been issued for a good portion of West Virginia where the higher elevations may see as much as 1-3". 

Although moisture deprived, this system should still generate a light band of precip across the entire state during the day on Tuesday.  Here's the 12z gfs depiction for Tuesday at 1pm.

Here's my current thinking on who sees what with this.  Most areas will struggle to see much stick because of warm ground temperatures and the fact that most of the precipitation will fall during the daytime hours on Tuesday with the sun angle still not quite in our favor.
