RICHMOND, Va. -- Slight cooling of the mid-levels of the atmosphere will occur today and Saturday, keeping our highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. Scattered storms will develop this afternoon, with lower chances for storms on Saturday.

The heat ridge will redevelop Sunday through Tuesday, with mid to upper 90s and heat index values over 100 degrees each afternoon. A strong upper-level trough will move southeastward by midweek, bringing us a chance for storms and potentially milder weather. The cold front associated with this trough could stall and eventually wash out in Virginia.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo is still on track to become a hurricane over the south-central Atlantic in the next day or two. Tropical Storm Hanna is circulating in the Gulf of Mexico and likely making landfall in southern Texas as a tropical storm on Saturday.
