SUMMERLIKE CONDITIONS CONTINUE… HURRICANE KYLE RACES TOWARDS EASTERN CANADA… COOLER WEATHER IS EXPECTED BY LATE IN THE WEEK

The calendar says it’s fall, but Saturday felt like a day in mid-August. The high levels of humidity made it feel quite uncomfortable, especially if you were physically active on Saturday. Sunday will be a similar day. What about rain chances? Although a shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, I really don’t believe that Hampton Roads will see anything widespread. However, any shower or storm that does develop may produce heavy rainfall rates due to the high levels of humidity. Monday should be a nice day and then a cold front will be approaching on Tuesday. This front may bring a shower or thunderstorm, but forecasters are only giving it about a 20% chance of rain. Later in the week, it looks like temperatures and humidity levels will be more fall-like. Hurricane Kyle is moving towards Eastern Canada and the coast of Maine will feel some of the effects of this minimal hurricane. It will eventually become extra-tropical. Will this be the last tropical cyclone of the season? That is impossible to answer, but with October around the corner, the season will soon be winding down. Just a quick note about our rainfall totals. I picked up 0.70 inches on Saturday, which brings my backyard total to over 10 inches of rain! I realize that many parts of Hampton Roads were not that “lucky” in September.
