It is a warm and humid morning with a few isolated showers across far western Virginia. The heat and humidity will continue again today with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. It will be a little cooler near the coast. There may be a few isolated thunderstorms, with the best chance being well northwest of Richmond this afternoon. It will stay warm and humid tonight with lows in the mid 60s.
Most of the area will stay dry on Saturday, but there may be a thunderstorm in the mountains and also near the North Carolina border. Highs will be in the 85° to 90° range.
We will see a bit more in the way of clouds Sunday and Monday along with a better chance for some scattered storms across the entire area. It will remain humid with highs in the lower 80s.
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance east of the Bahamas. There is the chance this may develop into a tropical depression or system. The current forecast is to bring the center near South Carolina over the weekend. As of now, any impact to Virginia would be minimal. Waves and rip currents may be slightly increased, and the moisture from the system will increase our chances for showers early next week. We will continue to track this system over the next few days. Additional details are available in the CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
