RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Many of you saw a ‘roll cloud’ or ‘gust front’ during your morning commute Monday morning.

We had a very weak front move through the area, and this cloud was the leading edge of that front.

At the time this passed through Richmond, there was a gust of wind and a wind shift measured at the Richmond International Airport.
