RICHMOND, Va. -- An upper-level trough extending from the central Great Lakes southward to the Ozarks will bring a good chance for thunderstorms to the area late Saturday, followed by milder conditions Sunday.

Tonight will be mostly clear, warm, and humid with lows in the mid 70s. Saturday will be another very hot and humid day, with highs in the mid 90s. Scattered storms will develop just east of the Blue Ridge early in the afternoon, with storms arriving in central Virginia by late afternoon and evening. A few storms could be severe with damaging wind gusts.

Showers and isolated storms will develop again Sunday as a surface front remains draped across the region. The upper trough will reload as several impulses move through its base, keeping lift and at least a low chance of storms in the area through midweek. A northwest flow pattern should keep high humidity at bay, as well as temperatures at or just a little below normal.

There are no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin at this time.
