THAT BRIGHT BALL IN THE SKY IS CALLED THE SUN AND WE SHOULD SEE IT FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS… THE STORM SYSTEM THAT BATTERED THE COAST HAS MOVED WELL OFFSHORE

After a cloudy and drizzly Saturday, Sunday is shaping up to be a very nice day with sunny intervals and temperatures reaching the mid-60’s. The low pressure system that has battered the Mid-Atlantic Coastline is now well offshore and has weakened. After all that excitement I think that we could use some nice, quiet weather for a change and that is exactly what we will get. So, get out there and enjoy the sunshine. Take a walk or do some yard work if it’s not too muddy. The next significant weather system probably won’t affect our region until later this week and right now, it’s not looking impressive. However, that could change. In the past, I’ve commented repeatedly on our overall dryness and below normal precipitation. Well, Norfolk International Airport now as a surplus of more than 10 inches of rain for the year so far. So, I think that we can declare the official end to the drought in all of SE VA. On another subject… What will the winter be like and will we finally get some snow? We haven’t had a significant snowfall here in VA Beach since December of 2004. Needless to say, we are well overdue for snow.
