RICHMOND, Va. -- Few thin high clouds this morning as a front crosses Central Va. This afternoon will feature scattered high clouds and an even warmer conditions in the low 80s. Weak energy will move into the region and there is a chance of a few showers north of I-64 and the Richmond Metro.

The chance for rain will increase slightly on Thursday as a back-door cold front moves into Virginia. Temperatures will only reach the upper 60s and low 70s Thursday afternoon. Mild weather will continue Friday as shallow cool air remains in place. A few showers or storms will be possible Thursday and Friday.

The pattern will remain unsettled through the weekend as the lead disturbance moves north of the area, and the trough reloads with another shortwave. Showers and a few storms will be possible Friday through Sunday, but no particular day appears to be a washout at this time. The extended pattern into next week suggests eastern U.S. troughing, which would result in occasional showers and storms as well as below-normal temps.
