RICHMOND, Va. -- Tropical Storm Fay made landfall just north of Atlantic City, New Jersey this afternoon and will continue to head up the east coast, with no further impact to the weather in Virginia.

A few showers and thunderstorms will cross the I-95 corridor as a "cool" front slides through the region overnight. It will remain warm and humid, with lows in the low and mid 70s.

The big story this weekend and next week will be the heat, as a large ridge of high pressure develops over the eastern U.S. Saturday will be partly cloudy with only a low chance for a shower or thunderstorm. The chances for storms will only be slightly higher on Sunday.

A weak front/trough will move into the area Monday, which could trigger a few more storms, but no cooling is expected in the wake of this system. Highs and lows for the rest of the week will steadily climb, with heat index values likely exceeding 100 degrees on several days.

Have a great weekend, and Stay with CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
