RICHMOND, Va. -- A cold front will move through the area this evening, bringing a few showers and storms to mainly southern and eastern Virginia, followed by drier and milder air.

Lows tonight will fall into the mid to upper 60s. Saturday will be partly cloudy and milder, with highs in the low to mid 80s.

An upper-level trough over the Great Lakes will pivot southeastward bringing lift to the area Saturday night through Sunday. Showers and thunderstorms will become likely over central Virginia, with a low chance for a few severe storms. Another cold front will bring drier conditions to the area Sunday night through Monday.

The initial trough will lift northeastward, but a second trough will dive southward out of the Dakotas and into the Southeast early next week. This pattern will bring below-normal temperatures and a good chance for rain Tuesday through Friday.

There are no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin at this time.
