RICHMOND, Va. -- A "cool" front moving into the area today triggering showers and thunderstorms, with the potential for local downpours. It will be a very muggy day, with afternoon highs in the upper 80s. Areas east of I-95 are in a Flash Flood Watch through the evening with the threat of up to 3 inches of rainfall possible. After the front, skies clear overnight and temperatures cool to near 70.
It will still be hot and humid Tuesday through Thursday with highs in the low and mid 90s. A passing storm is possible on Wednesday.
Another front will move into the area on Friday with a few scattered storms. This front will lower the temperatures and humidity levels a bit for next weekend.
In the tropics, we continue to monitor the system that is sitting off the east coast of Florida. It is expected to drift westward, and still has some potential to develop into a tropical depression.
