Posted at 11:26 AM, Jul 15, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. --Today will be very hot and humid with a high temperature near 95°. The Heat index will be near 100° this afternoon. We’ll have another low chance for storms this afternoon and evening as a slow-moving upper-level trough nears the region.

This trough will bring a good chance for showers and storms to the area late Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening. Locally heavy rainfall and damaging winds will be possible with the strongest storms. Scattered storms will develop again Sunday.

Showers and storms will still be possible through midweek as the trough remains in place over the region.

A push of milder air is expected early next week, keeping our highs in the mid to upper 80s for several days. A weak tropical disturbance northeast of Bermuda is not expected to develop very much as it remains nearly stationary.
