Richmond, Va. ( - Wind damage and power outages are likely tonight, as a squall ling is forecast to come through. Meteorologist Andrew Freiden says the line is expected sometime around or after nine this evening, meaning Richmond-area "trick-or-treaters" should be able to get their candy.

Freiden says the line will be triggered by a cold front.  Currently, Richmond is looking at summer-like air, but behind the cold front is winter-like air, and that is what is triggering the storm potential.  Freiden will not rule out a tornado risk.  

Behind the storms, the next three days will only have highs in the 50s.  Sunday night could see frost.
