RICHMOND, Va. -- Saturday opened with some steady rain for a good portion of central and eastern Virginia.  Rainfall and thunderstorms for the balance of the day will be more scattered.

The high humidity will allow for heavy rainfall in any storm that develops.  A cold front will enhance the chance for storms during the evening as it tracks across the state.  Isolated storms could have some hail and gusty winds, and there's a marginal risk for a few stronger storms.

Rainfall totals could exceed an inch in some locations, but the highest rain totals will be more common across far southeastern Virginia.

Most areas will stay dry on Sunday before thunderstorm chances increase again Monday into Tuesday.
