RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be mostly clear for much of the night, with some clouds arriving before dawn. Lows will be in the mid 50s to low 60s.

Clouds will continue to increase and thicken Sunday morning as it turns a little more humid. There will be the threat for showers to the west and north in the morning, with the highest rain chances near I-81. Showers will increase in and near the metro during the afternoon and early evening. Highs will be near 80 in Metro Richmond, but range from the low 70s far northwest to the mid 80s well southeast.

Showers will continue Sunday night. Rain totals will likely be in the 1/4" to 1/2" for most locations. Some showers may linger into daybreak Monday, but we'll then see a gradual decrease in clouds. Highs will be in the mid and upper 70s.

A dry spell is expected Tuesday though Friday, with afternoon highs in the upper 70s and low 80s, and overnight lows in the 50s. Our next rain chance will likely be next weekend.
