PM Update: Clouds increase tonight, fade Friday

November is on a roll. For the third straight day sun outdid the clouds and we climbed to 60 or better. A weather system passing by to the south increases clouds tonight into Friday morning, but the sun should make a brilliant return to close out the work week.

Through Tonight: High clouds increase this evening and then lower and thicken after around 10 p.m. It’s overcast during the pre-dawn hours when few will notice. Shower activity largely remains south of Fredericksburg and more likely Richmond. The clouds hold up overnight lows, which range from the mid-40s downtown to near 40 in the colder suburbs.

Friday: Clouds gradually decrease during the morning with sunshine becoming more dominant by afternoon. It will be a bit breezy, with winds from the north at 10 to 20 mph. High temperatures range from 55-60.
