RICHMOND, Va. -- Strong to severe storms will continue to develop Monday afternoon and evening. The most intense storms will produce damaging winds and large hail.

It will be quite warm and muggy with changeable skies and the threat for scattered thunderstorms each afternoon and night this week. Highs will be near 90 degrees Tuesday and Thursday, and in the mid 80s on Wednesday.

It appears somewhat drier air will inch into the area by the end of the week, ending the threat for storms. Friday through Sunday will offer mostly sunny skies, with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 80s and overnight lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

At this point, it looks like most if not all of the weekend will be rain free, with a slight threat of a few storms next Sunday afternoon, mainly to our west.
