RICHMOND, Va. -- It will be mainly clear and mild tonight with lows in the mid to upper 50s.

Sunday will be warmer with highs in the low and mid 80s, although northern areas will stay in the 70s. An approaching front may trigger a few scattered showers and even a rumble of thunder to the north during the day, with greater storm chances in central Virginia after sunset. There is a marginal risk of severe weather, with the threats being strong, damaging winds and hail.

Monday will bring plenty of sunshine, with afternoon highs in the mid 70s. Then the next system will bring a rain threat on Tuesday. It will be quite cool with highs only in the upper 50s and low 60s.

The rest of the week will remain cool, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Our “normal” high this time of the year is in the mid 70s. Rain chances are in the forecast Wednesday and Friday.

Next weekend looks dry, but quite cool for this time of the year.
