RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be partly cloudy overnight. It will be warmer and more humid than the past few nights, with lows in the 60s.

The weekend will be mainly dry, hot, and a bit muggy with highs in the low and mid 90s in areas away from the coast. The heat index will be in the mid to upper 90s. An isolated storm is possible Saturday, mainly north of I-64. A few isolated storms will be possible on Sunday.

A tropical system in the southern Gulf Of Mexico will bring strong winds and torrential rain to the Gulf Coast over the next 24-48 hours. The system will pass south of our area on Monday, but may be close enough to bring the threat for a few showers and thunderstorms across extreme southern Virginia. It will be muggy with highs in the upper 80s.

A cold front will approach later Tuesday with numerous showers and storms across the area. Highs will be near 90.

It will then be cooler and less humid Wednesday and Thursday.
