RICHMOND, Va. -- A disturbance moving in from the west overnight will bring a round of rain and thunderstorms. Scattered showers will turn to steadier rain and a few early morning storms will have the potential to produce torrential downpours along with strong, gusty winds. It will be warm and humid, with lows ranging from the mid 60s to the lower 70s.

The bulk of the rain will exit the area before midday Sunday, and we'll likely have many dry hours. However, a few scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible during the afternoon and early evening. Isolated storms could be strong, with gusty winds. Our rain totals could easily exceed 1/2". It will be a humid afternoon, with highs in the lower 80s.

Monday will be dry with a good amount of sun and highs in the mid 80s. However, a nearly stationary front along the Southeast coast will allow waves of moisture to bring a rather unsettled pattern much of the week. Scattered showers or storms are possible virtually each day. Highs will be a bit below "normal" for this time of the year, averaging in the upper 70s and lower 80s, with lows in the 60s.
