RICHMOND, Va. -- A rather large area of low pressure stacked up in the atmosphere will remain over the Mid-Atlantic for the next couple of days, keeping rain chances in the forecast. Tonight will be warm and muggy with a few isolated storms. Overnight lows will average in the mid and upper 60s.
While rain chances will remain better than 50/50 through Saturday, it certainly won’t rain all the time and much of the time may remain dry. However, when it does rain, it could be quite heavy in spots. Afternoon highs Friday and Saturday will be in the low 80s. By the way, the summer solstice occurs Saturday at 5:43PM EDT.
As the low slowly lifts away from the region this weekend, somewhat drier conditions will prevail. There will still be a few isolated storms around for Father’s Day with afternoon highs in the mid and upper 80s.
It will turn hot early next week, with a rather low threat for isolated thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s through Wednesday, when a cool front will bring higher storm chances again.
