FRIDAY WILL BE A GREAT DAY WITH COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY… THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY RETURN ON SATURDAY… STORMS ARE POSSIBLE ON SUNDAY

High pressure will slowly move off the coast and as it does, a south to southwesterly flow will develop on Saturday bringing in muggy weather just in time for the weekend. Meanwhile, an onshore flow on Friday will keep temperatures from rising too high, despite lots of sunshine. Although a shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out on Saturday, I don’t think that many of us will see one here in Hampton Roads. The further west you are, the better the chance will be. However, on Sunday, the chances go up somewhat as conditions will be more favorable for convection to develop, especially in the afternoon and evening. We really could use the rain as we haven’t had much of it over the past few weeks. You have to keep in mind that the evaporation rate is extremely high this time of year due to the strength and duration of the sunlight. There will also be an area of rain/showers/thunderstorms moving just to our north over the weekend. Right now, I don’t think that this will affect us right here locally. A disturbance in the upper-atmosphere is triggering that area of rainfall. I’ll have an update on Saturday.
