AFTER A STORMY DAY ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY WILL BE NICE AND SUNNY WITH MILD TEMPERATURES… A WEAK COLD FRONT BRINGS COOLER AIR BACK INTO HAMPTON ROADS ON SUNDAY, BUT A WARM UP IS COMING EARLY NEXT WEEK
The Nor’easter that brought heavy rain and strong winds to Hampton Roads on Friday is moving out to sea this morning. The weather today (Saturday) will be quite pleasant and temperatures should reach the low 60′s, which is slightly above normal. This will be a nice break for us as this winter has been relentless. A weak cold front will move through overnight tonight and a cooler air mass will move into the region on Sunday. It won’t be that cold on Sunday but it will be cooler than today. It doesn’t appear that we will see any significant rain with this front but a shower cannot be ruled out Sunday morning. On Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will be warmer. Then, forecasters will be watching a low pressure system and its associated cold front that will be approaching on Wednesday. Right now, it appears that we will see showers on Wednesday but it’s way too early for any details. Cooler weather will most likely follow that system later in the week… In the extended forecast, the Climate Prediction Center is forecasting below normal temperatures later next week into the following week. However, as the days grow longer and the sun climbs higher in the sky, it will just be a matter of time when we will see an end to the miserable winter that we’ve had. We have a nice break today so get out and enjoy it! Oh, and don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour tomorrow as Daylight Savings Time begins. Enjoy your weekend!
