RICHMOND, Va. -- A strong cold front passed through the area before daybreak Saturday. Cooler and less humid air will continue filtering into the region this weekend.

If you aren't a fan of hot and muggy weather, this will be the nicest-feeling weekend since mid-June. It will also be the first dry weekend since July 25-26.

After highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s Saturday afternoon, lows Sunday morning will drop into the 50s for much of the area. It will be a little warmer in southeastern Virginia and near the coast. Our coolest outlying areas will dip into the lower 50s, with some isolated upper 40s possible, especially closer to Interstate 81.

Sunday's morning low will be the coolest since June for Richmond International Airport.

Lows Monday morning will be a few degrees higher, but still very comfortable.

Humidity levels will increase on Labor Day, and it will turn more muggy for the middle and end of the week. Most areas will be dry, but an isolated shower is possible near Virginia Beach.

Unsettled weather is expected from mid-week into next weekend.
