RICHMOND, Va. -- It will be a breezy and very warm afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 80s. In some areas, this will be the warmest day of the year so far. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.
Tonight will be partly cloudy and mild with lows in the lower 60s.
A cold front will slip southward during Saturday. There will be the chance of some storms late morning/early afternoon in northern VA, and the storm potential will reach the metro by late afternoon. Highs will range from near 80 in northern VA to 85-90 across central and southern VA.
Sunday will be cooler with highs around 80 in the metro. Highs will be in the 70s north and northeast of Richmond, and well into the 80s across southern VA. We will see variable clouds and the chance of a few showers.
An area of disturbed weather near southern Florida will likely become Subtropical or Tropical Storm Arthur over the next 24 to 48 hours. It will move near the Bahamas and just off the southeastern US coast, and track to the northeast. This may get near the Outer Banks, but should stay offshore. The Outer Banks will see increased surf and gusty winds. Arthur will add moisture to our area, which will increase rain chances as a system approaches from the west late Monday.
An upper-level area of low pressure will hang across the Mid Atlantic states much of next week. This will provide cooler weather and occasional showers.
