Hot and humid today, but a cold front moves through tonight.
Good morning, RVA! It’s 70 °F, and the humidity continues for at least another day. Expect highs in the 90s and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon before a cold front moves through. Tomorrow, temperatures may not even break 70 °F, so get all your sweatin’ done today.
