RICHMOND, Va. -- Our weather in Virginia will continue to be driven by a large-scale pattern of high pressure over New England and low pressure over the mid-Mississippi Valley.

Today will be mostly cloudy and seasonal, the high will be in the mid to upper 70s. We’ll have a slightly better chance for showers and storms Friday night as the upper-low becomes stretched and energy increases over the Mid-Atlantic. The chance for showers and storms will continue into Saturday as a favorable upper-level pattern for continued lift remains in place.

A ridge of high pressure will finally become established by the end of the weekend, keeping rain chances low on Sunday and providing a long stretch of dry weather lasting through next week.

The tropics remain relatively quiet, with just one disorganized disturbance north of the Bahamas.
