RICHMOND, Va. -- The western edge of a strong region of high pressure centered over Bermuda will continue to keep our weather hot and humid through much of this week.

Today will be similar to the past few days, hot and humid with high temps in the lower 90s. The heat index will approach the upper 90s once again. An upper-level trough will weaken as it approaches the area, but still should provide sufficient lift for a few afternoon storms in the Piedmont and Tidewater.

Heat and humidity will remain a fixture in our weather late this week, with only a low chance for storms through Friday.

A deeper upper-level trough will move through the area this weekend, bringing us a better chance for storms Saturday through Monday. The atmosphere should support locally heavy downpours and strong wind gusts.

There are no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin at this time.
