RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will remain mostly clear overnight. It will be warm and muggy, with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The hot, humid pattern continues tomorrow, with highs in the lower 90s under mostly sunny skies and heat indices nearing the triple digits in the afternoon. Wednesday will likely be our hottest day of the week, with highs in the middle 90s.

The threat for scattered storms with torrential downpours will increase for the second half of the week. It will in fact remain muggy through the weekend, but the heat should abate a little bit. Highs for this upcoming weekend look to remain in the 80s with a slight chance of storms on Saturday.

In the tropics, Danny was a tropical storm for a brief time earlier today, making landfall just north of Hilton Head, SC. It will continue to weaken and the system should dissipate on Tuesday. Areas of locally heavy rain will still impact parts of Georgia and southern South Carolina. We're tracking another tropical wave in the central Atlantic. It will likely reach the Lesser Antilles by Wednesday evening and some slow development is possible.
