RICHMOND, Va. -- A code orange air quality alert will be in effect Wednesday as smoke from eastern Canadian wildfires continues to move into the region.

Today will be milder with most areas remaining in the 70s. Showers will be possible early this morning and again later this afternoon through evening. Later day showers will mainly form from roughly Richmond and southward.

Dry and comfortable weather is expected Thursday and Friday.

Highs will return to the mid-80s Saturday, with upper 80s possibly Sunday.

A strong and slow-moving upper-level low will bring a good chance of rain to the area early next week.
