We are starting the workweek out clear.. But clouds will be on the increase throughout the day… Highs will top out around 60°.
A warm front moving north of us on Tuesday will bring the very warm weather back for the midweek period. A few showers are possible very early Tuesday morning and then again later in the day into the evening, when a thunderstorm is also possible. Afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 60s to around 70°.
Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week, with possible record high temperatures. We expect readings in the upper 70s to around 80° (the record high at RIC is 80°, set in 1976). The next cold front will arrive at night, producing scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few of these storms could be on the strong side. The rain should end by sunrise Thursday, with gusty winds ushering cooler air back into the region. Skies will be partly sunny Thursday afternoon, with highs in the upper 50s.
Friday will be a partly sunny, cool day with temperatures in the low 50s. Next weekend will start on a cold note, with temperatures in the 20s early Saturday morning. We’ll rebound to around 50° during the afternoon with lots of sunshine. Then warmer air will return for Sunday, with temperatures back into the 60s under mostly sunny skies.
