INDEPENDENCE DAY LOOKS GREAT FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES… WET WEATHER WILL BE APPROACHING MAKING FOR A CLOUDY AND SHOWERY SUNDAY

I’m back from vacation and one of the first things I did when I arrived home was to check my rain gauge. There was only a trace which means that my VA Beach neighborhood didn’t receive significant rainfall since I left on June 24th. Note that it rained every single day while I was in Florida and the Bahamas. Your July 4th celebration activities should not be hampered by the weather as high pressure and dry air keeps most of us rainfree. However, wet weather will be knocking on our door Saturday night as a frontal system and a low pressure system approach the Hampton Roads area from the west and northwest. On Sunday, we could see showers at any time and some of the rain could be heavy. By the end of the day, the rain chances will shift from NW to SE. On Monday, we should see improving conditions. This summer has been unusually cool and wet across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and the Northeast. Meanwhile, the southern plains has been experiencing an incredible dry spell. I saw a report that some trees are dying from the drought in the Houston, TX metro area. The persistent ridge has been causing this stretch of dry and very hot weather in that region. I’ll have an update on Sunday morning. Enjoy your holiday and please be safe.
