RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Post-Tropical Storm Ophelia continues to push north away from our area and won’t have much of an impact today on our weather.
All rain showers have moved out of our area, but patchy fog will be with us in the early morning hours. There is also ponding on the roads and even high water on some roads due to the heavy rainfall yesterday. Drive carefully this morning with these conditions.
Although Post-Tropical Storm Ophelia continues to move away, we will stay with mostly cloudy skies today. Temperatures will stay cool in the lower 70s and it will be bit breezy with winds 5-15mph out of the northwest.
Tonight, winds will subside and it will be comfortable with overnight lows in the lower 60s under mostly cloudy skies.
We are stuck in an unsettled weather pattern for our work week in the wake of Ophelia. Although, most of the week is trending on the dry side, we will stay with cloudy skies for most days and cooler than average temperatures.
It looks like the best chance of rain showers is Tuesday and Thursday, but our risk remains low and most of us will stay dry.
Looking ahead to next weekend we are looking at more sunshine and closer to average high temperatures.
We now have Tropical Storm Philippe that formed in the Atlantic yesterday, but it does not currently pose a threat to Virginia.
