Posted at 7:01 AM, Sep 16, 2022

RICHMOND, Va. -- Lows tonight will drop into the 50s again, and some patchy fog will be possible.

The weekend will be mostly sunny, and it will turn a bit warmer and more humid. Highs will be in the low/mid 80s Saturday, and mid to upper 80s on Sunday. Areas of fog will be possible both mornings.

Highs will be near or above 90 much of next week. Those temps will be ten or more degrees above normal and within a few degrees of some records.

Rain chances will remain very low. An isolated shower or sprinkle is possible Monday night into early Tuesday, and again on Thursday.

The autumnal equinox, the astronomical start of fall, occurs at 9:04 p.m. next Thursday, September 22. As of now, it looks like Thursday will be the hottest day of the week.

Cooler air is expected to move in at the end of the week.

Tropics: Tropical Storm Fiona is located near the Leeward Islands. It will track westward towards Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, and then turn slightly more northwest. This would put the storm near the eastern Bahamas next Wednesday, possibly as a hurricane. The path after that point is still very uncertain. We will have more updates over the next few days, and more info is available in the CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
