Get ready for a warm weekend

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) -Finally, the warmer air has arrived in the area and it looks like we are going to see a spell of mild weather all the way through the end of the month.

Forecast Summary

  • Balmy weekend weather
  • Isolated showers on Sunday
  • Possible thunderstorms Tuesday
  • Unsettled end of next week

Skies tonight will be partly cloudy with overnight lows falling into the lower to mid 50s. You will not be seeing clear blue skies this weekend, but the clouds are the trade out for the much warmer weather.

I expect to see partly sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday over us. As temperatures will be warming into the mid to upper 70s both days, it will get a little breezy in the afternoon hours.

Late Sunday a weather system that is going to pass to our northwest might kick off a few spotty showers Sunday night into Monday morning. The overnight lows both Saturday and Sunday night will stay in the middle 50s.

Monday will be partly sunny with the chance of some showers in northern Virginia. Highs will be in the mid 70s.  Tuesday looks to be the warmest day of the bunch, depending upon the timing of a cold front into the area.  It will be partly cloudy with the chance

Tuesday looks to be the warmest day of the bunch, depending upon the timing of a cold front into the area.  It will be partly cloudy with the chance for some late day showers and thunderstorms.  If the rain can hold off until later in the day, we will see highs warming into the upper 70s and maybe the lower 80s in a few spots.

Wednesday and Thursday, fair skies will be returning to the area. Highs will drop back to near normal for this time of the year which is in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the 40s.   Friday another system will approach from the southwest.  This will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to us for Friday night and into Saturday.  So this rain could affect the Monument Ave 10k race on Saturday.
