Warm weather returns


After a cold start Monday morning, a warm-up began that will last for the rest of the week.

The overall weather pattern will allow warmth from the deep south to surge into our area, producing temperatures over 10° above normal for the period of Tuesday through Friday.  Highs will hit or break 80° in the metro, which are more typical of late May or early September. 

The record highs for this period for Richmond are:

  • 87°  Tuesday
  • 86°  Wednesday
  • 83°  Thursday & Friday


There will be a significant change in the jet stream pattern early next week, allowing the coolest air of the season to slip south from Canada into our area.  Highs for Tuesday & Wednesday of next week may not get out of the 50s.
