Welcome to the weekend!
Summary: Summer heat persists across the Heart of Virginia this weekend. Highs will reach in the lower 90s, and most locations won’t receive any rain.
Saturday and Sunday will continue to be hot and humid. Highs reach the lower 90s with a heat index of 95 to 100. Temperatures will be hotter east of Lynchburg.
A few pop-up showers could develop in the afternoon heat. Highest rain chances will be in/near the mountains. Rain chance less than 20%.
Nights and mornings will run warm with lows of 65 to 70.
There are no big weather pattern changes next week: continued hot and humid with highs near 90 and lows from 65 to 70.
We don't see any signs of significant rain chances, so the dry weather continues into next week.
Looking ahead to the middle and end of next week, a weak cold front could provide us down a slight cool down toward Thursday.
