RICHMOND, Va. -- The temperature officially hit 101 degrees Wednesday afternoon in Richmond, with a heat index of 105, making Wednesday our first triple-digit high of 2024.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue to be possible through late tonight, with a threat for damaging wind gusts and large hail with the strongest storms.

A cold front will move through Thursday with a few scattered showers possible in the morning. Behind this front, it will be less humid for Friday, but highs will still be in the low 90s.

There will be plenty of heat and humidity this weekend, with highs in the low to mid-90s.

Scattered showers and storms will be possible on Saturday and again on Sunday.

Parts of the state are now over 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.
