RICHMOND, Va. -- It will be warm and humid overnight, with partly cloudy skies and lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Sunday will continue to be very warm and rather muggy. We'll have a mix of sun and clouds, with a few pop-up storms around later in the day. Highs will be in the upper 80s

The week ahead will have highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Much of this period will be dry, but a few isolated pop-up storms are possible.

Henri is located well off the Mid-Atlantic coast. It will move to the north-northwest tonight into Sunday, likely making a landfall on Long Island Sunday afternoon. Henri will remain far enough away to keep impacts to Virginia minimal. It will provide extra moisture to any storms that develop this weekend, and it will create rough surf and rip currents for the beaches of Virginia and North Carolina.

Grace made landfall as a hurricane with 125 mph winds in eastern Mexico, well south of Texas. It will move westward and weaken.

Another disturbance is being watched in the far eastern Atlantic, but it does not show any big signs of major development.
