COOLER WEATHER MOVES INTO HAMPTON ROADS… THE DRY WEATHER PATTERN CONTINUES INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK

The weather pattern has been very dry of late with very low relative humidity levels. This combined with windy conditions have caused ideal conditions for wildfires and forest fires to erupt in some parts of Virginia. Brush and forest fires have been a problem for parts of the Northeastern States. Many states in the Eastern part of the country have banned open burning. There really is no relief in sight as the pattern remains dry overall. There might be some sprinkles here and there this afternoon and evening as an upper-level disturbance moves through but significant precipitation is not likely through early next week. Temperatures will be below normal through Thursday and will probably be above normal by the time we get to Sunday as our winds should become more southwesterly. Right now, there is a large high pressure system over Central Canada which is causing a cool north to northwesterly flow across the Mid-Atlantic States.  That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
