RICHMOND, Va. -- More areas of fog will develop overnight and last through daybreak Saturday. Lows will be in the range of 55-60 for most locations.

After the fog dissipates Saturday morning, we will see some sunshine. It will be warm with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. An approaching cold front will cause some scattered showers and thunderstorms. These will occur across northern and NW VA by early afternoon, and then move into the metro by mid to late afternoon. Rain chances will increase in the evening and overnight hours.

Sunday will be a much cooler day with temperatures in the 50s. Skies will be mostly cloudy, and there will be areas of fog, drizzle and light showers around.

Highs will warm back into the lower 70s on Monday, and the mid to upper 70s on Tuesday. A cold front will bring the chance of a few showers on Tuesday.

An area of low pressure moving in from the southwest, combined with some tropical moisture increasing from the Gulf of Mexico, will increase rain chances Thursday into early Friday. Cool weather is expected Friday through Sunday with highs from the mid 50s to lower 60s.

Tropics: Hurricane Epsilon is located to the northeast of Bermuda, and will track to the northeast into the northern Atlantic. An area of disturbed weather in the Caribbean may develop into a tropical depression or named storm over the next few days. This system would be called Zeta, and would tie 2005 as the most active Atlantic tropical season on record. Computer models take this into the central and eastern Gulf next week.
