Mild weekend, with showers moving in tonight

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —  We are dealing with areas of fog this morning due to high dew point temperatures and light winds. Fog will thin out before noon, leaving us cloudy and mild this Saturday. Highs will reach the low 60s this afternoon.

Showers will move in after 8 PM this evening as a storm system approaches the region. This will be our first round of rain with the system and should persist through the early morning hours. Temperatures will fall to the low 50s overnight and hit the low 60s on Sunday.raquel_1

Showers will lighten Sunday morning before becoming prevalent late afternoon. Moderate rain will continue overnight. Some spots in the Commonwealth could receive an inch or more of rain by Monday morning. Gusty winds may also be an issue as the storm system draws near Monday morning. Highs will be in the upper 50s/low 60s.

As the storm system clears the Mid-Atlantic, we will see the showers taper off Monday night. Tuesday and Wednesday will be partly sunny and pleasant with highs in the low 60s.

A cold front will cross the Mid-Atlantic on Thursday and we will see a few clouds develop for the end of the workweek. We may see a few passing showers on Thursday; otherwise, we are looking partly cloudy into the weekend. Temperatures will return to the upper 40s on Friday with cool air lingering through the weekend.
