THE WARMING TREND CONTINUES AS A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST… DRY CONDITIONS SHOULD CONTINUE UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK

As the high pressure system that brought the unseasonably cool conditions to Hampton Roads moves off the Southeast Coast, the return flow of air will be from the southwest. This wind direction will bring in warmer air over the weekend. Temperatures will most likely be above normal on Sunday and Monday. No significant rainfall is expected through Tuesday which is not good news. Although Southeast Virginia is not officially in a drought, increasingly dry conditions are creating problems for fire fighters due to the increased chances of wild fires and forest fires. Low humidity levels combined with windy conditions have already caused problems in the western part of Virginia… The national weather headline for today (Saturday) will most likely be the severe weather that is expected to break out from Texas to Minnesota. Due to the changing wind directions with height, conditions will be ideal for tornadoes in that part of the country. Did you check out the pictures of lightning hitting the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco? That is an amazing sight. The rainy season in California will soon be ending. Our next chance of rain will not come until the middle of next week.  That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
