RICHMOND, Va. -- Saturday marked the end of a long stretch of high temperatures mostly below normal.  Highs Friday did not get out of the 50s, and some late-day sunshine on Saturday pushed the high only into the 60s.

Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s through Tuesday.  A southwesterly wind will bring hotter and more humid weather for Wednesday through Friday.

Most areas away from the coast will touch or break 90° on Wednesday.  Temperatures will be similar for Thursday and Friday.

Humidity levels will be comfortable through Tuesday, but we will see moderately humid conditions for the second half of the work-week.  This will be enough to make it feel a few degrees hotter.

A cold front will pass Friday into Saturday, and this will push the temperatures down a bit for next weekend.

Rain chances will remain low all week.  A couple of thunderstorms are possible later Friday into Saturday.
