RICHMOND, Va. -- An upper-level trough will remain in place west of Virginia through Friday, bringing us a chance for rain each day. No day appears to be a washout, with our best chance of rain coming on Friday. We'll have a few showers and storms Saturday, followed by seasonally hot and mostly dry weather Sunday.

The pattern continues to look mostly dry and hot next week, with high temperatures gradually reaching the low to mid 90s.

We have two tropical depressions in the Atlantic Basin. Tropical Depression Thirteen is predicted to impact the Caribbean over the weekend as a Tropical Storm and could potentially strengthen as a category one hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Depression Fourteen is forecasted to strengthen to a Tropical Storm by Friday morning and make landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula before potentially impacting the coast of Texas. A third disturbance has emerged from the west coast of Africa and has a low chance of development over the next 5 days.
