Dry with Low Humidity Wednesday and Thursday
Posted at 5:14 AM, Jun 20, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. -- A strong cold front moved through Virginia today, bringing heavy rain and a much milder air mass to the region. Expect gradual clearing overnight, with lows dipping into the mid to upper 50s in many locations.

Wednesday will be a very comfortable day, with low humidity and highs in the mid to upper 70s. Thursday will be another tranquil day as high pressure remains in place over the region.

We’ll see an uptick in humidity on Friday as the high weakens, allowing southeasterly flow to return. A few showers or storms will be possible Friday afternoon and evening.

A deep upper-level trough will develop over the Great Lakes this weekend, with a responsive southwesterly flow across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. This pattern will transport seasonally high heat and humidity into the area this weekend into early next week, with a chance for showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening.

A disturbance in the south-central Atlantic has a low chance of tropical cyclone development as it slowly approaches the Windward Islands over the next few days.
