AFTER A CHILLY SATURDAY, HAMPTON ROADS WILL ENJOY A MILDER DAY ON SUNDAY… THEN, ATTENTION TURNS TO A LOW PRESSURE AREA THAT WILL FORM IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

The weekend is going to be sunny for the most part and a warming trend will set in making Sunday much warmer than Saturday. A southerly wind will bring up the milder air. On Saturday, temperatures will be hard pressed to reach 40 degrees. On Sunday, 60 degrees is within reach in some inland spots, especially in NC. Then, all eyes turn to a low pressure area that will be taking shape along the Gulf Coast. This low is going to intensify as it moves rapidly northeastward late Monday and Tuesday. There are still questions regarding the track of this system. For us here in Hampton Roads, the precipitation type will most likely be in the form of rain, with maybe some snow or flurries at the end of the event. However, for folks to our north, the precipitation type is very questionable. If this takes a certain track, heavy snow could fall in DC and points north and east. If you are traveling early next week, please monitor this system closely. I’ll have a full update on this system in my Sunday morning post.
