A SUMMER-LIKE PATTERN TAKES OVER WHICH MEANS GREAT WEATHER FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES… A COLD FRONT MAY BRING SOME SHOWERS/STORMS TO THE AREA BY MID-WEEK

Just in time for the unofficial start of summer, a very summer-like pattern has taken over. This means warm (sometimes hot), sunny days, moderate humidity levels, and just a chance of an isolated thunderstorm in spots. High pressure off the Carolina coast will cause a SW wind for several days. A cold front may bring the chance of showers and/or thunderstorms by mid-week. This front may stall nearby extending the chance of showers for a day or two. Prior to that, with the heat and humidity levels, an isolated shower or storm could pop up at any time but the chance is very slight in any one location. On Saturday, an isolated shower popped up and brought about a quarter inch of rain to my backyard. It wasn’t much but it brought some moisture to the plants and grass. Hurricane season begins onTuesday but the reality is that the season doesn’t usually ramp up until August. However, now is the time that you prepare by stocking up on the essential supplies and formulate a plan should a major storm threaten Hampton Roads. The forecast for this year’s season is for an active season. Here are some things to keep in mind 1) Hurricane activity forecasts this far in advance aren’t always accurate 2) Even if the season is very active, a storm may not affect our region 3) Even if the season is not very active, a major storm could still impact our area. So the bottom line is to be ready and have a plan. I’ll have an update on Monday. Enjoy the rest of the Memorial Day weekend and remember to honor our fallen heroes.
