MILDER AIR IS ON ITS WAY… ARCTIC AIR MAY BE HEADED OUR WAY NEXT WEEK

Southwesterly winds will bring in milder air Thursday and especially on Friday. Temperatures should top out in the upper 50’s on Friday. The weekend looks okay but a shower cannot be ruled out early Saturday. Arctic air is once again on the move in northern Canada and we may see a piece of that air mass early next week. There also may be a frontal system approaching bringing some moisture to our region at the same time, so stay tuned. After the forecasting fiasco earlier this week, folks aren’t going to believe it when the weathermen predict snow for Hampton Roads, but trust me, errors of this magnitude are rare. Nearly every model had SE VA getting at least some snow. My thinking is that meteorlogists should use their judgement and not just go by the models. As I stated in my previous post, the dry air won out but the next time, that may not be the case. I’ll have a full post on Saturday.
