Spectacular Friday forecast

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) –Ask and you shall receive! The SUNSHINE is finally back here in RVA! It’s looking like a beautiful day, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 83 degrees. Humidity will be at a tolerable level today, but winds will be quite gusty, out of the West at 10-25mph.

If you or your student is heading to Kings Dominion for Top of the Class, the forecast really couldn’t be better. Here’s the breakdown for the day: We’re starting off the morning in the upper 50s, but that won’t last long. By 8am we’ll be mostly sunny and 63. Winds will already be strong at 10am with mostly sunny skies and 71. Noon is perfect for lunch outside as long as you hold onto the umbrella that you’re sitting under (shading you from the sun, not any rain!). By 2pm we’ll be near 80, with a high of 83. This evening looks just as splendid with low 80s through 6 o’clock and upper 70s by 8pm. Winds turn light and variable after 8pm. Skies remain clear overnight and we’ll drop to a low of 62 degrees.

  • Mostly sunny, warm, & breezy today
  • WEATHER AWARE Tomorrow- Slight Risk for severe storms
  • Isolated storms Sunday & Memorial Day

Tomorrow is another weather aware day. We have a few afternoon storms in the forecast, and some may turn severe. Yesterday we were under a marginal risk and saw a few storms with hail, but no severe weather came to fruition. Tomorrow’s threat is slightly higher—we are under a “Slight Risk” for severe weather. We will have to carefully watch this and possibly turn tomorrow into a severe weather alert day if the threat increases further. Timeframe for tomorrow afternoon storms will be roughly 4-8pm again, at the peak heating of the day to sunset. Main threats will be strong damaging winds, and the potential for large hail. Highs are in the middle 85.

Sunday also features the potential for a few isolated afternoon storms with highs in the low to middle 80s. Memorial Day we will see that same afternoon storm threat. We could also see strong storms on Monday too, as a cold front moves through the region. Highs stay in the upper 80s.

Getting back into the swing of work and school coming out of the three day weekend, the weather looks beautiful! We have partly sunny skies on Tuesday with a high of 84. Wednesday looks sunny with a high of 82. Thursday and Friday we have a mix of sun and clouds and middle 80s.
