StormTracker 8: Warm with an evening shower today


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – We start off with sunny skies across Central Virginia, but clouds will increase throughout the day. Temperatures will be above average, reaching into the upper 70s.

An approaching cold front from the West will continue to increase clouds and add in the chance for a quick evening shower. The rain won’t last, and I expect some dryer conditions overnight.

You’ll want the rain jacket and umbrella for Sunday though. Scattered showers are expected throughout the day, mainly focused into the afternoon and evening hours. Mostly cloudy skies are across the Commonwealth with a strong northerly wind. This will keep us on the cooler side, only making it into the middle 50s through the afternoon. This will be one of the coolest days we’ve seen in months!

Clouds are slow to push out of the area as we kick off the workweek. We should be done with all of the rain for our Monday with a few pockets of sunshine during the afternoon. High temperatures be close to seasonal averages in the upper 60s.

We’ll add extra clouds as we head into Tuesday afternoon. Even with mostly cloudy skies, high temperatures will make it into the low 70s with a light wind.

Another system will begin to slide in on Wednesday, adding clouds back into the forecast. High temperatures will be below average in the middle 60s with chances for some overnight rain.

Showers are across the area for our Thursday afternoon. Rain is expected for most of the day with mostly cloudy skies and light winds. High temperatures will be mild in the middle 60s.

Rain chances linger for Friday as well. Cloudy skies and brisk winds are expected across the commonwealth. Temperatures will be cooler in the low 60s during the afternoon.

The rain should clear out for Halloween with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be cooler, only in the low 60s. Even though temperatures are below average, it should be a pleasant Halloween.

In the tropics Hurricane Epsilon has 75 mph winds and is heading into the Northern Atlantic. No impact to the US East Coast is expected, except some possible higher surf.
