Expect clear and seasonally cool conditions overnight, with lows in the upper 30s across most of central Virginia. High pressure currently over central Pennsylvania will shift eastward tomorrow, bringing warm southwesterly flow to the area. High temperatures in the low 70s will result in low relative humidity values, and with breezy conditions developing by late morning, fire danger will be enhanced across the area. Be very careful with any open flame on Thursday, particularly between 11 AM and 6 PM.
A storm system currently over the central U.S. will impact the area Friday into Saturday. Expect scattered showers early Friday, with variably cloudy skies and a few isolated showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon. A line of showers and storms will be possible late Friday evening into Saturday morning as a cold front moves through the area.
The weekend looks mostly dry, with just a few lingering showers associated with the cold front early Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday will be breezy and cool under mostly sunny skies. Easter Sunday will get off to a cold start, with sunrise temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. Sunshine will allow highs to reach the mid to upper 60s Sunday afternoon, perfect for the egg hunts and Easter On Parade in Richmond.
Seasonally warm and increasingly humid conditions will develop through the first half of next week, with a slight chance of a shower or storm Tuesday, and more widespread activity on Wednesday. No significant severe weather is expected over the next 7 days.
