HEAT AND HUMIDITY DOMINATE OUR SATURDAY AND THERE MAY BE A STORM IN SOME SPOTS… A NORTHERLY BREEZE WILL CAUSE TEMPERATURES TO TREND DOWNWARD ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY

Saturday is going to be a very warm one for Hampton Roads. The combination of temperatures over 90 and very high dew points will make it quite uncomfortable for most of us. An approaching cold front should destabilize the atmosphere enough to create a scattering of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some storms┬ámay reach severe levels so please be alert for rapidly changing conditions. On Sunday, a northerly breeze will be blowing transporting cooler, less humid air into the region. However, there will still be a slight chance of a shower. The heat should stay away through Tuesday…. Did you know that some parts of VA Beach received nearly 5 inches of rain Thursday night during those intense thunderstorms? I picked up 1.30 inches in my VA Beach backyard. I’ll have an update on Sunday.
