RICHMOND, Va. -- A very warm and humid air mass will remain in place today, with dew point temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Highs will be summer-like in the low to mid 80s. An upper-level disturbance near the Ohio Valley will move eastward towards Pennsylvania and New York bringing lift to the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic areas. For us, more showers and isolated thunderstorm activity is expected this Friday. A few storms could be severe with damaging wind gusts and some hail or brief tornado possible.

A cold front will move across the area midday Saturday, bringing the rain to an end, and ushering in drier air. This dry air will provide brief relief from the humidity. Sunday through Tuesday will feature plenty of sunshine as well as low humidity.

Another cold front will bring a chance of rain to the area next Wednesday and Thursday.
