HIGH PRESSURE KEEPS US DRY AND ON THE COOL SIDE ON SATURDAY… AN APPROACHING FRONTAL SYSTEM BRINGS MILDER AIR IN ON SUNDAY AND SOME RAIN SUNDAY NIGHT

The low pressure area that moved through Hampton Roads last Thursday brought about 1.25 inches of rain to my backyard. The low is now well offshore and high pressure nosing down from the north will keep us dry on Saturday. With a NE to E wind off the water, temperatures on Saturday will be a bit chilly. As a frontal system approaches on Sunday, the southerly flow ahead of the system will bring up warmer air. Rain associated with this system should hold off until Sunday night. Thunder is possible in some spots, especially to our south. Rain ends on Monday…. The West has been hammered this week by multiple storm systems. There were mudslides, flooding, high winds, heavy snow, etc in many parts of the West. Numerous deaths and injuries were reported, mostly from flooding and vehicle accidents. The West gets a break but more wet weather lies ahead next week. I’ll have an update on Sunday morning.
