THE UNSEASONABLY COLD WEATHER EASES SOMEWHAT… SHOWERS ARE IN THE FORECAST FOR LATE MONDAY AS TEMPERATURES WARM UP AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT

The unseasonably cold weather that put us in the deep freeze has eased somewhat, but along with the warm up comes a chance of showers late on Monday. The deep freeze has ended the growing season for most of us here in SE VA.  A cold front will be approaching on Monday and some models suggest that we will see a good shot of some rain later in the day and at night. A look at the national radar today (Sunday) doesn’t show much precipitation at all anywhere. However, as a frontal system moves east towards our region, it is expected to pick up enough moisture to bring us some shower activity later Monday. The low will be deepening as it heads northeast into New England. This will set up a windy cool regime after the cold frontal passage Monday night. Forecasters say that rain chances will drop off on Tuesday and we shouldn’t see any significant rain until until Saturday. Thanksgiving Day looks nice and relatively seasonal here in the Southern Mid-Atlantic Region. According to forecasters, the next chance of significant rain is on Saturday.
