RICHMOND, Va. -- A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now in effect throughout parts of Virginia.
Scattered storms will come to an end early this evening, with muggy conditions overnight. A surface trough will bring a wind shift to the area by early Friday, knocking temperatures and humidity values back, but only slightly. Friday will still be a very hot day, with highs in the low to mid 90s. Rain chances will be less than 20% in all areas.
This weekend will be hotter and more humid, with heat index values reaching triple digits each afternoon. A more significant pattern change will bring a better chance for showers and storms early next week, and a break from the high heat.
There are no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin.
