RICHMOND, Va. -- Expect partly cloudy skies tonight, with only a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm. Lows will be around 70.

Saturday will feature variably cloudy skies, with a chance of widely scattered storms, with chances higher near the coast. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Sunday will also have variable cloudiness with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A few scattered showers or storms will be possible.

Next week will be fairly hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Tropics: Henri is located between the East Coast and Bermuda. It is expected to become a hurricane and track parallel to the East Coast, but well offshore of the Mid-Atlantic. Its proximity will create rough surf and dangerous rip currents at the VA & NC beaches this weekend. Henri may make a landfall in New England by Sunday evening, with significant coastal flooding expected.

Grace is in the Bay of Campeche and is tracking westward towards Mexico, and should make landfall as a low-end category two storm late tonight or early Saturday morning.

Another disturbance is being monitored in the eastern Atlantic. It shows very low signs of development, and it should remain in the eastern Atlantic.
