RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Here’s what kind of weather to expect across Central Virginia for the remainder of the holiday weekend.
For those interested in being outside and doing some holiday shopping, the weather will be especially mild for Friday night and most of Saturday.
The rest of Friday night is expected to bring clear skies and overnight lows that will fall into the mid-30s.
Saturday will bring sunny weather and few clouds in the afternoon. Virginia will see temperatures rise as the day continues with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. In the evening, however, clouds will begin to move into the area as a storm makes its way from the Southern Plains to the northeast.
Weather conditions for those traveling Saturday should be mild to fair up and down the I-95, I-85 and I-81 corridors.
Sunday will be more difficult, with a storm system bringing rain and thunder to the area. There may also be delays for those flying out of east coast airports.
Rain will arrive in Central Virginia during the midday hours and last through the afternoon. Rain may return later in the afternoon as a cold front moves through.
