ACCORDING TO FORECASTERS, RAIN CHANCES INCREASE FOR ELECTION DAY… A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT COOLS US DOWN A BIT AND AN ONSHORE FLOW BRINGS IN CLOUDINESS

A backdoor cold front will move through on Sunday lowering temperatures a bit from what they were on Saturday. Wasn’t Saturday a beautiful day? Winds behind the cold front will blow from the NE and E and this may bring in some clouds from the ocean on Monday. Then, all eyes turn to a developing low pressure system that will strengthen near the Southeast Coastline. This low may bring us some wet weather on Tuesday but there is quite a bit of uncertainty as to how much rain will fall. The current projection is that areas to our south and east will see the most rain but we’ve seen in previous coastal storms that the trends became wetter to our north in some cases as the event drew closer. Now, with Tuesday being Election Day, this storm will have to be watched as unfortunately, wet weather may keep some folks from going out to vote. It shouldn’t, though, so make sure that you get out there and vote! We need the rain as we are facing a deficit around 4 inches at ORF. So, to sum it up, after a sunny Sunday, clouds will dominate Monday and Tuesday with an increasing chance of showers.
