RICHMOND, Va. -- Isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible through early evening, with skies gradually clearing overnight. We'll have a few more showers and storms developing Tuesday afternoon as weak upper-level energy moves over a very warm and humid environment. Any storms that develop will pose a flooding risk, as the ground in many areas of Virginia is still nearly saturated.

Our chances for rain will increase later this week as an upper-level trough takes shape to our west, bringing additional lift to the region. The severe weather threat will be low, but flooding will continue to be a concern, given the lack of steering flow and likelihood of very slow-moving storms.

A drier pattern should evolve by early next week. Highs for the majority of the next 7 to 10 days will be below normal.

There is currently one weak disturbance in the central Atlantic, but any development should be slow to occur.
