RICHMOND, Va. -- Tonight will be mostly clear and seasonal, with lows in the mid 60s.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Highs will jump into the low and mid 90s on Friday.

High pressure will strengthen this weekend, bringing upper 90s to the area Saturday and Sunday. The heat index will peak around 100 Saturday, and could approach 105 Sunday.

A cold front will bring the chance of scattered storms on Monday. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

Behind the front, highs Tuesday will be a degree or two cooler, but still near or above 90.

The 90° weather may linger into late next week.

Potential Tropical Cyclone One became Tropical Storm Alberto this morning, and will make landfall around midnight. Alberto will then weaken to a depression over the higher terrain of central Mexico by midday Thursday.

An area of disturbed weather is located east of the Bahamas. This has a very low chance of development the rest of the week as it tracks westward towards Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.
