RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be mostly cloudy across central Virginia Thursday with highs reaching the low 70s.

A couple of showers will be possible, especially across southeastern Virginia.

Friday will be partly to mostly cloudy with a few showers will be possible.

A cold front will bring a better chance of rain on Saturday.

Much of next week will be dry and cool.

Hurricane Matthew is approaching Florida as a category four hurricane.

It will track along the Florida coast up to Georgia and South Carolina.

A sharp turn to the right (out to sea) is shown by many tropical and global models, but there is still the possibility that Matthew could parallel the coast as far north as Hatteras before moving out to sea.

We’ll continue to monitor how the model data is handling the large-scale pattern, and will update on the changes in the track of this dangerous storm.
