When we could see scattered storms on Mother’s Day

Posted at 10:38 AM, May 12, 2018

RICHMOND, Va. -- Until today, the hottest temperature so far this year has been 91°.  Highs Saturday afternoon will reach the low to mid 90s, making it the hottest day since last July.  We set a record high temperature of 93° in Richmond Saturday, breaking the previous record Richmond International Airport of 92° set in from 2015.

The humidity will make it feel a few degrees hotter.  Temperatures will be a little cooler near the coast.

Lows will be in the 60s Saturday night.  A cold front will split our viewing area on Sunday.  North and east of the front, highs will be much cooler.  Hot weather will continue for locations southwest of the front.

Some scattered storms will be possible on Mother's Day, mainly later in the day.

Temperatures will remain above normal for the coming week.  After highs near 90° early in the week, temperatures will cool a bit for the second half of the week.  Scattered storms will be possible each day.
