RICHMOND, Va. -- This is our final weekend of Spring, and it will be a very comfortable one. After hot and muggy weather this past week, cooler and less humid weather has moved in and will stick around for a few more days.

Dew points, which were in the mid 70s on Thursday, will be in the 40s and lower 50s this weekend.

Humidity levels will increase a bit more during the middle and end of the week.

Rain chances this weekend will be fairly low, with the best chance of storms in western Virginia.

For the week ahead, an area of low pressure cut off from the main jet stream will spend most of the week meandering across the southeastern United States.

This will keep the chance of storms around each day for the entire week. Rain chances will be highest in southern Virginia, and minimal well north of Richmond.

Extra clouds, the chance for showers, and an easterly wind will keep temperatures below normal.

Once this pattern breaks down at the end of the week, it will turn hotter next weekend. Highs are expected to be near or above 90. The summer solstice occurs on Saturday at 5:43 p.m.
