BUILDING HIGH PRESSURE TO OUR NORTH PUSHES FRONTAL BOUNDARY FURTHER SOUTH INTO THE CAROLINAS… ONSHORE FLOW TO DOMINATE MOST OF THE UPCOMING WEEK… THAT MEANS NO HEAT WAVES FOR A WHILE

As the frontal system limped through SE VA and NE NC on Saturday, it touched off some showers and thunderstorms. About a quarter of an inch fell in my VA Beach backyard. Some areas received much more rain. Although there is still a slight chance of a shower or storm on Sunday, forecasters don’t think that much of Hampton Roads will see any rain. But with dew points still around 70, and a frontal boundary not really that far away, you cannot totally rule out some isolated convection. Normally, we don’t see activity when our winds are blowing from the N-NE. Weak disturbances moving through the Mid-Atlantic States early this week may produce a shower or thunderstorm late on Monday or early on Tuesday. The winds will be onshore most of the upcoming week, so temperatures should be rather pleasant, especially along coastal regions. Late in the week, the front that is south of us now, will return as a warm front. Based on that prediction, we should see a return to warmer, more humid weather by next weekend. The tropics are quiet for now (Sunday), which is expected at this time of year.
