AN EXPANSIVE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED TO OUR NORTHEAST WILL BRING US DRY WEATHER THE NEXT FEW DAYS… TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGES… AN UNSETTLED PERIOD BEGINS ON SUNDAY
Folks traveling in the Mid-Atlantic states on this Thanksgiving Day will not encounter any issues from the weather with the exception of some early morning fog in some locations. High temperatures here in Hampton Roads will be in the 60’s, which is a little above normal. Friday will be a similar day, and it may be a little warmer…. I wanted to comment on the weather this past Sunday. That day turned out very wet as low pressure developing along a cold front brought much more rain than was previously forecasted. My rain gauge recorded 1.10 inches of rain. The rain fell heavier than expected and it lasted much longer than was forecasted. It was a very raw day as temperatures stayed in the 40’s for the most part… Well, no weather worries today or tomorrow (Black Friday). The nice weather should continue into Saturday. A slow moving cold front approaching from the northwest may bring us a shower on Sunday. Rain chances go up somewhat Sunday night and it may stay unsettled for a few days after that as the front is expected to stall. There is some computer model disagreement as some paint a wetter picture than others for us on Monday and Tuesday. I’ll try to post an update on Saturday morning…. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and if you are traveling, please be safe! Thanks for reading!
