AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW SHOULD KEEP OUR WEATHER A BIT UNSETTLED SUNDAY AND POSSIBLY MONDAY… THE CLOUDS WILL KEEP THE TEMPERATURES DOWN BUT HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL BE HIGHER THAN THEY’VE BEEN

A weak upper-level low pressure system will move southward through eastern VA and NC on Sunday and Monday bringing with it a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The coverage and intensity of the rain is very hard to predict. Officially, the NWS states that we have a 70% chance of rain today (Sunday). I think that it will be hit or miss situation. Last night, it rained in some areas to our west and north. The onshore flow will continue which combined with the cloudiness, should keep our temperatures on the comfortable side. Humidity levels will be elevated so it may feel a bit muggy at times. An offshore storm system that is expected to develop may bring breezy conditions on Tuesday, but it’s track is not certain at this time. It appears that most if not all of its rainfall will remain offshore. Forecasters will be watching it for any changes, however. Will it attain warm core characteristics? No one knows for sure. It’s not out of the question since hurricane season will be starting in just over a week. That’s it for now. Have a great day!
