Heat, humidity linger to begin new week

Posted at 5:15 AM, Jul 05, 2020

RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be variably cloudy overnight, with lows in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Monday’s weather will be similar to today’s, with hot, humid conditions and a few scattered afternoon/evening storms. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s. Much of the area will be dry on Tuesday with highs in the low 90s.

Moisture moving in from the south may produce a few more storms later Wednesday. Meanwhile, we’ll be tracking an area of low pressure over the Southeast that will move to the Carolina coast later in the week. This could bring us a good surge of showers and thunderstorms on Friday. Highs later in the week will be in the mid to upper 80s, with very muggy conditions continuing. An upper level trough will push this system out of the way next weekend, with the threat for a few isolated to scattered storms will likely remain.

In the tropics: Tropical Depression 5 has become Tropical Storm Edouard and is several hundred miles northeast of Bermuda. It is expected to become post-tropical and head into the north Atlantic over the next couple of days. We are also watching a disturbance in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This is the system that will track across the Southeast to the Carolinas, potentially impacting our weather Thursday and Friday. Conditions may become favorable for some development as it moves into the Atlantic.
