RICHMOND, Va. -- An upper-level trough will move through the region today, but dry air in place will diminish any chance for rain. Southwest winds ahead of the surface front associated with this trough will boost temperatures into the low to mid 80s Wednesday afternoon. The front will move through the area in the pre-dawn hours Thursday, with highs only reaching the low to mid 70s Thursday afternoon.

Cloud cover will increase on Friday as cirrus clouds associated with Hurricane Delta move into the area. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible Saturday, but the best chance of rain will come Sunday as the remnant moisture from Delta moves through the region. Rain will likely linger into Monday, with most areas receiving .5 to 1 inch of total rainfall and 1-2" for the Western Piedmont and the Blue Ridge and Valley

We'll have a dry day Tuesday, with another storm system potentially bringing showers to the area next Wednesday.

The only tropical system of significance at this time is Major Hurricane Delta, which should make landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula and then along the northern Gulf Coast. More information can be found in the CBS 6 Interactive Tropical Tracker. Stay with CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
