RICHMOND, Va. -- It will be mild overnight, with a few more scattered showers possible. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s.

A few showers are possible early Sunday, but then a bunch of dry hours are likely, with variably to mostly cloudy skies. Gusty southwest winds will boost temperatures into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Occasional gusts over 30 mph are possible, with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing ahead of an approaching cold front. These storms could be severe with damaging wind gusts. Isolated tornadoes are possible. Once the front passes, drier and much cooler air will move in Sunday night.

Monday will be sunny and cooler with highs in the lower to mid 60s. Tuesday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 60s.

Some scattered showers and storms are possible Wednesday into Thursday morning. After highs near 70 Wednesday, it will be much cooler (in the 50s) on Thursday. Thursday night into Friday morning will be cold with lows in the mid and upper 20s.

High pressure will provide fair weather Friday through next Sunday. Highs Friday will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s, but should rebound to near 70 by next Sunday.
