When major jet stream shift will bring highs in the 60s this week

RICHMOND, Va. -- The low temperature Sunday morning at Richmond International Airport dropped to -3°.  This shattered the old record of 10° from 2014, and was the coldest temperature since -6° on January 21, 1985.  The normal low temperature for this date is 28°.

Lows away from the coast ranged from a little above zero to around -10°

Here were the record lows prior to this morning:

A major change in the jet stream will flush the arctic air out of the area early this week.  A gush of Pacific air will cross the country and reach us Thursday into Friday, producing highs in the low to mid 60s.

From Sunday's -3° to the mid 60s on Friday marks an almost 70° temperature increase.  Colder weather will return next Sunday into Monday with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
