RICHMOND, Va. -- It will be warm and humid overnight with variably cloudy skies and lows in the mid to upper 60s. There is the threat for an isolated shower or two.
Heat and humidity will continue to increase this weekend, with highs reaching the low 90s on Sunday. A ridge of high pressure will develop over the Mid-Atlantic early next week, limiting rain chances and keeping a hot air mass in place. Highs will reach the low to mid 90s Monday through Wednesday, with most areas remaining dry.
A potent upper-level trough will very slowly approach the region late next week and into the weekend, bringing us a better chance for thunderstorms. There is the potential for some severe weather over the weekend as the trough nears the region.
There is currently only one weak disturbance of note in the Atlantic Basin, and it remains a few hundred miles off the west coast of Africa. Any development of this disturbance is expected to be slow to occur.
