RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - After a warm work week with above average temperatures, a substantial cool down will arrive this weekend.

A cold front will push across central Virginia on Saturday, ushering in cooler temperatures. The cold front may bring a few rain showers on Saturday especially during the afternoon and evening.

After the cold front passes, it will turn much cooler with high temperatures on Sunday and Monday in the mid-60s. Low temperatures will likely drop into the mid to upper 40s early next week!

It will be “sweater weather” - time to get a jacket for the morning commute and for the kids at the bus stop in the morning. In addition, the air is going to dry out-- making it feel CRISP for the first time this year. In fact, you might even notice your skin getting dry for the first time.

The cooler than average weather will likely stay with us for much of next week (October 8-14).
