RICHMOND, Va. -- Scattered strong to severe storms will be possible this evening, especially across the northern half of Virginia. The most intense storms will be capable of large hail, damaging wind gusts, and a brief tornado or two. The storms will diminish tonight, with warm and humid conditions Friday morning.

A few storms will be possible late Friday afternoon along a pre-frontal trough. Highs will reach the upper 80s and low 90s. A seasonally strong cold front will move through the area early Saturday morning, bringing a milder and much drier air mass into the region. Low humidity and seasonal weather will continue into Sunday.

A few showers and storms will be possible on Labor Day, but most areas will remain dry. Unsettled weather will return to the region by the middle of next week, with a chance for rain each day.

Nana will continue to weaken over Mexico tonight, and Omar will degenerate to a post-tropical low over the western Atlantic. Two other disturbances in the eastern Atlantic will be slow to develop, but each has a chance to become a tropical cyclone in the next 5 days. More can be found in the CBS 6 Interactive Tropical Tracker.
