RICHMOND, Va. -- Strong high pressure has settled into the region and will bring us our coldest morning so far this season Tuesday. A Frost Advisory is in effect for most of central Virginia, including Richmond, from 2 AM until 9 AM Tuesday. Sensitive vegetation will need to be covered or brought inside to prevent potential damage from frost. Full sunshine is expected Tuesday, with highs around 70 for much of the area.
The pattern this week will promote a steady and significant warm-up, with highs in the 80s by Thursday. Temperatures are likely to reach the 80-degree mark every day until Monday. Our next chance of rain will likely not be until Halloween night.
Hurricane Tammy continues to northeast over the central Atlantic, and will likely weaken while turning northwestward towards Bermuda this weekend. Tropical Depression Twenty-One formed this afternoon, and should move inland over Nicaragua in the next 12 hours, producing flooding and possible mudslides.
