StormTracker 8: Cool and cloudy with showers tonight

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) -- After a lot of cloud cover for our afternoon, our temperatures remained on the cooler side for the second half the day. We will continue to see those cooler conditions as we head overnight, but with the extra clouds our temperatures are slow to drop, only reaching the lower 50s. As we had into the early morning hours we could see a quick shower or sprinkle as a cold front sits to the South of us. The shower chances should be wrapping up by about 7 a.m.

Once the rain clears out early on your Wednesday morning we are looking at quick clearing clouds. Expect to see mostly sunny skies through the afternoon with winds picking up out of the Northwest. High temperatures will be very seasonable in the lower 70s through the afternoon.

Sunny skies linger for our Thursday afternoon but it's going to be noticeably cooler across the area. Afternoon high temperatures only reach the upper 50s, putting us about 15 degrees below average. Winds will be light and it's going to feel like the end of fall across Central Virginia.

The roller coaster ride with our temperatures continues through the end of the week. High temperatures on Friday, with abundant sunshine in the forecast, will reach the middle 60s. This is still below average for this time of the year but closer to seasonable averages. Winds stay light through the day with some clouds increasing as we head into the evening hours.

Saturday has cloudy skies as a weather maker pushes through. Expect to see an early shower as we start off the weekend with a light sprinkle expected in the afternoon. Temperatures remain in the upper 60s through the day with winds increasing in speed.

Those clouds will clear away as we head through our Sunday morning leaving behind some cooler conditions but sunny skies. Abundant sunshine does little to warm us up, highs will only be near the 60-degree mark. Winds will also be brisk through the afternoon, making it feel cooler as we wrap up the weekend.

Monday begins to workweek with abundant sunshine back in the forecast. Temperatures are still about 10 degrees below average in the lower 60s. The winds will begin to decrease in speed, but it will still be a crisp afternoon.

We will add a few clouds in as we head through our Tuesday afternoon as temperatures gradually get warmer. Partly to mostly sunny skies are in the forecast as highs reach the middle 60s. Winds will remain light, making it feel comfortable.
