RICHMOND, Va. -- A big area of high pressure in eastern Canada will not move much over the next few days, and this will keep the weather pattern pretty stagnant.  This means dry weather will continue, but it also means our warming trend will be a minor one until early next week.

Highs will stay in the 60s through Saturday and then break into the lower 70s on Sunday.  Southwesterly winds will push highs to around 80° on Monday, but a cold front will pass through late Monday, and this will cool things a little for the middle of next week.

We should a nice mild/warmer trend for the end of next week through the end of April.

It also looks like we will stay dry through the middle of next week.  Rain will hit the southern United States and parts of the west.  Accumulating snow will occur in the mountains.
