A complex of showers and thunderstorms will move through West Virginia and into Virginia this afternoon and evening.  A few strong storms will be possible as this activity moves through central Virginia, with strong winds and hail being the primary threats.  Tonight will again be warm and humid, with lows in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Scattered showers and storms will be possible again on Friday as a cold front moves into the state.   The front will not arrive in Richmond until around sunset, so tomorrow will still be hot and humid, with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s across central Virginia.

Showers will still be possible behind the front on Saturday, particularly in the first half of the day.  Sunday should be the much better outdoor weekend day, with variably cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 80s.

Expect quiet weather for the first half of next week, with comfortable overnight lows, and seasonally warm afternoons.  A cold front will bring a chance of showers and storms to the area next Thursday.

We continue to monitor a disturbance in the Atlantic that has a good chance of becoming our next named storm.  The latest suite of tropical models shows the system moving through the Lesser Antilles, with most tracks interacting with Hispaniola, moving towards the Bahamas or Florida, and curving away from the east coast.  This may change, so stay up with the latest forecasts through the weekend.  We’ll continue to bring you the latest updates on the air, as well as on Facebook and Twitter. You can track everything happening in the tropics with our CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.

Have a great Friday, and Stay with CBS 6, We’ll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
