Clouds will give way to more sunshine during the day. A few isolated sprinkles are possible this morning in Richmond, and there will be some showers southwest of the metro. The chance of a shower will shift across western Virginia this afternoon. Highs will reach the mid and upper 70s. It will be partly cloudy tonight with lows in the 50s.
Warmer weather will return for our final weekend of summer. It will be mostly sunny on Saturday with highs in the lower 80s (but in the 70s near the coast). Sunday will feature sunshine with a gradual increase in clouds. Highs will reach the mid and upper 80s, but it will be cooler near the coast. There will be an area of low pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast, and this may be close enough to bring a couple of showers to Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks.
A cold front will move through our area Sunday evening and Sunday night, bringing additional cloudiness and the slight chance for a few showers. The best chance for seeing any shower activity will be between sunset Sunday and sunrise on Monday. Behind this cold front, temperatures will be a little cooler for next week. The autumnal equinox occurs at 10:29 p.m. on Monday.
There are no major disturbances in the Atlantic as of now. That area of low pressure that will be off the Mid-Atlantic and southeastern coast has a very slight chance of minor development. Across the Atlantic, another tropical wave will develop off the west coast of Africa over the next few days. We will keep an eye on both of those areas over the weekend, and you can track anything tropical with our CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
