Very warm weather lasts through Saturday.

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) –Warm air continues to flow in over the area ahead of a potent storm that is hitting the Midwest with heavy snow. Skies will be mostly clear tonight, but once again you can look for patchy fog to develop overnight. Lows will be in the mid 50s.

Forecast Summary

  • Warm though Saturday
  • Possible tstrms Saturday afternoon
  • Much cooler Sunday
  • Unsettled weather next week

Skies will be partly cloudy over the region tomorrow. Winds out of the south and southwest will propel temperatures up into the mid 70s to possibly the lower 80s in a few spots.  I will be watching the Ohio River Valley tomorrow for a possible outbreak of severe storms there. Of course tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the big outbreak that we had here in Virginia.

Friday night will be partly cloudy with mild overnight lows in the middle 50s. Saturday the cold front will move into the region.  It will be partly cloudy and breezy.  Highs will be in the mid 70s.  As the cold front comes by we will see isolated to scattered thunderstorms.  The best energy is to the north of us, right now these storms do not look that horrible, but we could see some strong wind gusts if they get cranking.

Saturday night will be breezy and cooler, setting us up for a sunny Sunday, but with highs only in the mid mid to upper 50s.

Another system will cross the area on Monday night into Tuesday with a chance for some rain over us. Highs will be around 60 to 65 both days.   Wednesday we will warm up once again, and then see the risk of thunderstorms as we head into the evening hour with another system on the way.
