RICHMOND, Va. – CBS 6 Weather Authority Meteorologist Mike Goldberg says Saturday will be much like yesterday, with lots of clouds around and a few peeks of sun.

Scattered showers and storms will be around during the afternoon and evening, but it won’t rain all the time.  We’ll have many rain-free hours, but you’ll need to keep an eye to the sky and be prepared for a shower to pop up at any time.  It will be very muggy, with afternoon highs in the low to mid 80s.

The main threat for scattered storms will be between about 4 and 8 p.m.  That doesn’t mean it won’t rain after 8 p.m., but our overall chances will go down.  Hopefully that means we can get all the fireworks displays in without Mother Nature getting in the way.

Sunday will bring a little more sun, but a few more scattered storms will pop up during the afternoon.  Highs will be in the mid 80s.
