TUESDAY MAY BE THE BEST DAY OF THIS WEEK… AN UNSETTLED AND RATHER COOL WEATHER PATTERN IS DEVELOPING WHICH COULD BRING HAMPTON ROADS A DECENT AMOUNT OF RAINFALL

Octobers can be quite tranquil, but they could also be active at times. The pattern that is setting up seems to be quite active and should result in some rather nasty weather for us here in Hampton Roads. As the headline states, Tuesday will most likely be the best weather day of the week. Moisture will be spreading into our region on Wednesday which should result in a cloudy day with an increase chance of rain. The further south you are, the better chance of rain there will be. There may actually be two systems that will affect the region. The second one will approach from the southwest later in the week. The timing of the rainfall will be quite problematic. Forecasters do believe that the southern part of the Wakefield (AKQ) forecast area will see up to an inch of rain when all is said and done later this week. Hampton Roads is part of the southern region. This same system may bring the first snowflakes of the season to the interior portions of the Mid-Atlantic states and the Northeastern states. Accumulating snow is possible up there in the higher elevations. Winds may also become an issue as we see an increased gradient between a high pressure area to our north and the approaching low pressure systems. So get ready some wet and cool weather and please be careful driving.
