Richmond, Va. -- This is December?? A surge of warm air will affect Virginia through Monday.  High temperatures will be 20° to 25° above normal.  These temperatures are more typical of early/mid October or late April/early May.  A few record highs are possible before the warm air departs.


The Tacky Light Run will be warm!  Temperatures after sunset will still be in the 60s, and we should end up in the 50s by the end of the race.


A cold front will push through on Monday.  Ahead of it, we may stay dry enough to get into the 70s before rain arrives in the afternoon.  Behind this front, there will only be a minor drop in temperatures.  However, we are tracking some colder air for next weekend.
