StormTracker 8 forecast: Morning showers; late-day sun

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — We are tracking a few showers this morning that will be here for your morning commute and last into the early afternoon.

The showers should end around 2 p.m. and we should see some late day sunshine across Central Virginia. It will feel cool today because of that rain but our actual high temperature will top out in the lower fifties — which is normal for this time of year.

We will have partly cloudy skies across Central Virginia for this evening and tonight, and it will be mild with our overnight lows falling back into the middle and upper forties across the region.

Tuesday will feature a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day and it will be a warm day as our high temperatures climb into the middle seventies.

Forecast Summary

Wednesday will start off partly sunny but a few more clouds will develop in the second half of the day. However, it will once again be warm with highs in the upper seventies to near 80.

Mostly cloudy skies will be with us for Thursday and it looks like we will have some showers late in the day as a weather front approaches the region. We will be a bit cooler on Thursday due to the clouds and showers as our high temperatures only climb into the middle sixties.

Scattered showers will be with us again on Friday and it will remain cool but seasonable for this time of year with highs near 55.

Saturday will start off partly sunny and it will be very mild with highs in the middle to upper sixties, however, there is the risk of rain late in the day.

Our next weather system will be with us on Sunday giving us more clouds and the risk of showers throughout the day but it will remain mild with highs near 70.
