SATURDAY WILL BE ANOTHER MILD DAY AND SUNDAY WILL BE MUCH COOLER… STRONG WINDS AND VERY LOW DEW POINTS CAUSE RED FLAG WARNINGS TO BE POSTED BY THE NWS

Wasn’t Friday a treat, with temperatures in the 70’s with lots of sunshine? Well, as you know, winter is not over just yet and we will see a return to more seasonal weather on Sunday. A cold front moved through Hampton Roads overnight Friday night and behind it, strong winds will usher in cooler, drier air. These strong winds combined with very low dew points have prompted the NWS to issue Red Flag Warnings for a large part of Virginia and North Carolina for Saturday. Gale Warnings are in effect for our coastal waters.

From now through early April, windy days are quite common due to several factors. I have a weather fact that describes the reasons for this. Check it out.

 Temperatures will still be mild on Saturday but the colder air will be more evident on Sunday as temperatures will be at or below seasonal norms. A frontal system will be approaching Sunday night and Monday producing a lot of cloudiness but precipitation is not likely until we get to Monday night and Tuesday. Forecasters aren’t expecting a lot of rainfall, but there will be a chance of a shower Tuesday morning. Another frontal system may impact our weather later next week. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
