We’re in for another beautiful weekend across central Virginia, with plenty of sunshine. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 80s and the humidity won’t be too high. Your Saturday evening will feature a few passing clouds with temperatures slowly lowering through the 70s, into the mid 60s overnight.
The heat and humidity will increase as high pressure shifts east off the coast, allowing a southerly flow to strengthen tomorrow. That means temperatures will inch above 90° in many locations during the afternoon.
A weak disturbance may trigger a shower or thunderstorm Monday afternoon, with temperatures of 90°+ again possible. The hot weather will stick around for the rest of the work week, kicking off the month of September. Tuesday appears to be a mainly dry day, with isolated storms becoming more likely Wednesday through Friday.
Tropical Storm Erika continues to bring heavy rain to Hispaniola and move over Cuba during the next 24 hours. It remains somewhat disorganized and is fighting land interaction and wind shear. *If* the storm can survive the trip over Cuba, it has the potential to gain some strength heading toward the Gulf of Mexico. If this happens, it could threaten the Gulf Coast of Florida/Florida Peninsula early in the new week. Either way it has the potential of producing heavy rain and severe weather across parts of the Sunshine State. More information is available in the CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
