Hot, humid 4th of July weekend; few afternoon storms possible

Posted at 11:24 AM, Jul 03, 2020

RICHMOND, Va. -- A weak upper-level disturbance will bring a low chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm to areas along and east of I-95 tonight.

Saturday will be another hot and humid day, with a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. An onshore wind will keep coastal areas 5-8 degrees milder than those locations in the central Piedmont. Sunday will feature more heat and humidity, with winds returning from the south. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible Sunday.

Hot and humid weather will continue through much of next week as an upper-level ridge remains over the eastern U.S. There is the potential for an area of low pressure to develop off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia which would bring higher rain chances and milder weather to the region, especially along the coast, next Friday and Saturday.

There are currently no significant tropical disturbances in the Atlantic Basin. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend, and Stay with CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
