RICHMOND, Va. -- A powerful upper-level trough will move through the region tonight, bringing a round of showers and thunderstorms to most of Virginia. A few storms could be severe, with damaging winds as the primary threat. Flash flooding will also be possible with a very moisture-laden atmosphere in place over the area. A front will move through the area tonight, bringing drier air to the region for Wednesday. The rain will end from west to east in the early morning hours, with mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day.
A second cold front will bring a push of cooler air to the region Thursday night, keeping highs in the 60s Friday and Saturday. A few showers will be possible as this front moves through the Commonwealth early Friday morning, but dry weather is expected most of Friday through the weekend. A few showers will be possible Sunday night into Monday as another strong upper-level low moves through the area.
A weak disturbance could form in the western Caribbean late this week, which would have a medium chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.
