CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After several days with low dew points and relative humidity, the weather pattern begins to change on this Friday. A westerly breeze heat high temperatures well into the 80s to 90 degrees over central Virginia this afternoon. The relative humidity won’t be all that high until this weekend.

Tracking a severe weather risk over the Ohio Valley into tonight. Those storms look to weaken as they cross the Appalachians overnight into early Saturday.

As the atmosphere turns muggy and a cold front to the north, there will be some spotty showers and thunderstorms form during especially the afternoon and evening Saturday and Father’s Day, Sunday.

Also watching the progress of a tropical weather disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico. This system is trying to form into a tropical storm. If it does, its name will be Claudette. The most rainfall looks to stay south of our region Sunday into Monday.

A cold front on Tuesday will give us a shower and thunderstorm. Followed by lower temperatures and humidity mid next week again.

Friday: Mostly sunny. Highs 85 to 90 degrees. Light west breeze.

Friday night: Milder and partly cloudy. Lows 65 to 70 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday: Partly sunny, hazy, hot and more humid. A spotty shower/storm possible. Highs upper 80s to lower 90s. Lows upper 60s to lower 70s.
