Tonight will be very warm and humid, with lows in the low to mid 70s. By the way, the record warmest low temperature for Richmond is 76, set in 2010.

Sunday will have similar temperatures to Saturday. However, it will be more humid, producing a heat index up to around 105°. Sunshine will give way to some afternoon clouds, and there is a possibility of a few isolated storms in the afternoon and evening. Most locations will stay dry, but the storms that develop may produce some downpours and gusty winds.

On Monday, it will still be hot, but it will turn a little less humid as a front pushes south of us. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s. A few storms are possible during the day, mostly southeast of Richmond.

Tuesday will be sunny with highs in the low 90s with more comfortable humidity. The heat and humidity will surge again on Wednesday with highs in the upper 90s and a potential heat index near 105°.

A front approaching on Thursday will bring us our best rain chances for the week, with scattered storms and highs in the low 90s. Highs will stay around or above 90 through next weekend.

Parts of the state are now near three inches below normal for June rainfall. The latest drought monitor shows 96% of Virginia as "abnormally dry", and within the last week, one-quarter of the state is now classified as "moderate drought". This includes part of the Eastern Shore, and areas well west of I-95.
