RICHMOND, Va. -- This weekend opened with very comfortable conditions. Humidity levels were low and daybreak temperatures dropped down into the 50s.
Our trend of warmer-than-normal afternoons will continue as highs reach the mid 80s to around 90° Saturday afternoon. The normal high for Richmond is 83°.
Lows Saturday night into Sunday morning will still be nice with temperatures ranging from the mid 50s to some lower 60s.
Highs Sunday should be near or just above 90° in many locations away from the coast.
Humidity levels will begin to increase on Sunday, making the hotter weather feel even a few degrees warmer. Higher humidity levels will arrive for Monday, but temperatures will be a bit cooler during that period.
Rain chances will remain minimal for the remainder of the weekend. There may be an isolated shower or storm in a spot or two late Sunday, mainly after sunset.
A storm system will bring a better chance of rain and thunderstorms on Monday. Rainfall amounts could exceed a half-inch in some locations.
Highs will stay in the 70s for a few days before warmer weather returns heading into next weekend. Computer models indicate we may see at least a few days of 90° or higher early next week.
