Much cooler air will cross the mountains tonight just in time to usher in the beginning of fall. The autumnal equinox occurs this evening at 10:29 EDT. There will be some clouds around, especially from Richmond south and east, but it should remain mostly clear to the north & west. That’s where temperatures will tumble into the 40s prior to sunrise. Overnight lows should average in the low to mid 50s elsewhere.
Tomorrow will bring more sunshine with some clouds from time to time. It will be cool, with afternoon highs averaging in the low 70s.
Clouds will be on the increase tomorrow night, as a trough of low pressure takes shape along the coast. By Wednesday afternoon, shower chances will increase across the region, particularly from Richmond south and east. There’s still some question as to how far north and west the rain will get, but Metro Richmond could get wet later Wednesday into early Thursday. As of now, this appears to be our only rain chance through the upcoming weekend. Speaking of which, Saturday and Sunday look dry, with a warm-up on tap. Highs on Saturday will be near 80 degrees, with readings in the mid 80s Sunday afternoon. Overnight lows will average in the upper 50s and low 60s.
Meanwhile, the tropics remain very quiet.
