RICHMOND, Va. -- High pressure will remain in place over the weekend, keeping our weather mostly sunny and dry with low humidity. Tonight will be clear and cool, with lows in the mid 50s. Sunshine will rule the day Saturday, with highs in the low 80s. A ridge will develop over the area Sunday through much of next week, allowing temperatures to return to the upper 80s and low 90s. This pattern will also keep rain chances very low.
Today is the peak of hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin. Mindy remains a post-tropical low over the southwest Atlantic moving east-northeast away from the U.S. Hurricane Larry will continue to weaken as it accelerates northward into cooler waters. Larry is still expected to be a strong post-tropical low as it passes the latitude of Greenland this weekend. A strong wave will emerge from the west coast of Africa in the next 24 hours and has a high chance of tropical cyclone development. Another disturbance near Belize also has a high chance for development as it moves into the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico. More is available in the CBS 6 Interactive Tropical Tracker.
