RICHMOND, Va. -- A pattern of northwesterly flow over the Mid-Atlantic will keep seasonally high heat and humidity in the area through the rest of the work week. High temps will be in the low to mid 90s. A few widely scattered thunderstorms will be possible each afternoon and evening. There is a Marginal/Slight Risk for severe storms this afternoon and early evening for Richmond and east of I-95. Gusty winds and heavy downpours will be the main threat. Storms may be a bit more numerous Thursday afternoon.
A deeper trough will develop this weekend, and will move very slowly east through much of next week. This feature will result in below-normal temperatures and a better chance for storms each day.
There are no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin at this time.
