Posted at 5:58 PM, Jul 23, 2021

RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be variably cloudy overnight, and itt will be warm and humid with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s. A few showers well west of Richmond will gradually taper off.

Sunday will be hotter and rather muggy. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s, and the afternoon metro heat index will be in the mid to upper 90s. Skies will be partly sunny, and an isolated shower or storm is possible, mainly west of I-95.

A "cool" front will move into the area on Monday, increasing the threat for scattered storms. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90.

The rest of the week will be fairly humid with highs in the lower and middle 90s. An isolated storm is possible just about each day.

In the tropics, a disturbance sitting off the Florida and Georgia coast this weekend could develop into a tropical depression. Most computer models have the system lingering around Florida the next few days, and a few models push it farther away from the coast during the coming week.
