RICHMOND, Va. -- A strong upper-level low pressure system will exit the region tonight, and will be replaced by a flattened ridge, allowing temperatures to warm considerably this weekend. Highs will reach the low to mid 70s on Saturday under mostly sunny skies and light winds. Sunday will be even warmer, with upper 70s and low 80s. An upper-level disturbance will move into the region Sunday afternoon, triggering thunderstorms over Virginia. Monday will be warm and dry, with highs in the mid 70s. The pattern Tuesday through the end of the week will feature a reloading large upper-level trough over the eastern U.S. that will send occasional shots of cold air and rounds of rain to the Mid-Atlantic. Temperatures Tuesday through Mother's Day will be below-normal. Have a great weekend, and Stay With CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
