RICHMOND, Va. -- A system off the North Carolina coast will be just close enough to the Mid-Atlantic coast to bring a few more showers overnight into Sunday. Lows will be in the low and mid 60s.
A few showers will linger Sunday, especially during the morning. In the afternoon, the clouds will break for a little sun, especially west of I-95. Highs will be in the lower 70s along the coast, and in the mid and upper 70s elsewhere.
Monday will still be rather cloudy, with a shower or two possible closer to the coast in eastern VA. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.
We'll begin a warming trend on Tuesday, with partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s. Temperatures should jump into the low 80s for Wednesday and Thursday, with mainly sunny skies.
Friday will remain rather sunny and warm, with highs in the mid 80s. An approaching cold front may trigger a few widely scattered showers on Saturda.
We will continue to monitor the system we are watching southeast of Wilmington, NC as it has a chance of becoming a subtropical storm. The track will keep it east of Virginia, but it will cause increased wave heights and dangerous rip currents. It may also provide some minor flooding along the coast of the Bay during high tide cycles, with water levels up to a foot above normal.
