Clouds from Florence coming into Northern Virginia

NORTHERN VIRGINIA - Good morning all! Expect warm and humid conditions over the weekend. A few showers are possible today. Otherwise, temperatures will approach 80 degrees.

Warm and muggy overnight may lead to some fog for some who see calm winds. A stray shower cannot be ruled out. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60's.

As we head into Sunday, expect more clouds with warm and stagnant air, as we have seen over the past few afternoons. We have a slight chance of showers. More rain will fall, however as we go into the work week.

A chance of showers and storms are possible on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week as Florence makes its way up the Mid-Atlantic into the Northeast. Showers and thunderstorms are likely for Monday. Continued showers will be possible for Tuesday.

The rain should leave by Wednesday if Florence decides to pick up the pace as it continues on land. If it slows a bit, we could see rain again Wednesday and maybe Thursday, but the current track currently sees Florence out and back at sea by Wednesday potentially causing rain and waves off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.

Thursday and Friday look quiet for now, but long-term models suggest a disturbance potentially for next weekend. More to come on that later.

Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:

Saturday: Mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers. Highs will be up into the mid to upper 70's to around 80 degrees. Winds will be out of the northeast at 5-10 mph.

Saturday night: Mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of a stray shower. Patchy fog possible after midnight in areas that see calm winds. Lows will be down into the mid to upper 60's. A breeze will be out of the east 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers. Highs will rise into the upper 70's and lower 80's.

Monday: Mostly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will rise into the upper 70's and lower 80's.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely. Expect highs in the upper 70's and lower 80's.

Wednesday: A few broken clouds. Partly cloudy. A slight chance of a shower. Highs will be in the low to mid-80's.
