RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A weak weather disturbance will cross the area this evening with a few isolated showers, mainly to the north of the Richmond area. Rainfall will not be significant from any of these showers.
Overnight it will be partly cloudy over us. Lows will stay very mild—in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Saturday, skies are going to turn mostly sunny over us. Temperatures are really going to take off, so by the afternoon hours we could easily reach the upper 70s and lower 80s over inland locations. Near the bay it might stay a few degrees cooler. Saturday night, a weak boundary is going to pass from north to south in the area, allowing for some cooler weather to move in.
Sunday, highs will only be back to around 70 (still nice, let’s not get greedy on the warm air) but clouds will rapidly increase during the afternoon. By late in the day rain will be knocking on the western counties of the viewing area. Sunday night will be rainy over with the some locally heavy rain possible.
Showers and thunderstorms look to be on tap for Monday.
The middle of next week, Tuesday-Thursday, is looking very nice, however at the end of the week there are signs of unsettled weather arriving for the start of next weekend, which is NASCAR weekend here in Central Virginia.
Don’t get all worked up over it yet, as it is still a week away, but understand that we could get a bout of rainy weather then.
