FRONTAL SYSTEM STALLS OVER OUR REGION KEEPING THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, ESPECIALLY IN OUR SOUTHERNMOST REGIONS… HUMIDITY LEVELS STAY HIGH FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE

Hello everyone, I’m back. I had a bad case of pneumonia which is why I haven’t posted the past several weeks… Well, as the headline states, the muggy weather will continue for several days. A frontal system will stall out over our region this weekend keeping us in an unsettled weather pattern. However, rain chances will vary as you head NW to SE. Our most northwestern areas shouldn’t see any showers today (Saturday) while our southeastern regions (i.e. NE NC) will have a good chance of showers/thunderstorms. A disturbance will increase our rain chances on Sunday and Monday. I want to comment on my local VA Beach neighborhood and how we have missed out on all of the storms that have moved through Hampton Roads over the past several days. All I’ve picked up in my backyard is really trace amounts over the past week while some parts of Hampton Roads have had a good soaking. Last evening, a fairly decent area of showers were heading in only to dissipate before reaching Southside Hampton Roads. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we see some rain this weekend. So, the bottom line is that with all the clouds around, we shouldn’t be as warm as we were on Friday. However, the humidity will be high so it will feel uncomfortable. The tropical Atlantic remains quiet.  I’ll have an update on Sunday.
