FORECASTERS ARE PREDICTING A SOAKING RAIN FOR PARTS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES ON SUNDAY AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM RIDES UP THE EAST COAST

It’s been a very long time since we’ve had a widespread soaking rain across the Hampton Roads region. Parts of our area are classified in a moderate drought so we could really use the rainfall. Well, if the current forecast holds, we may receive some very beneficial rainfall on Sunday as a very wet weather system moves up the East Coast. A cold front that is approaching the coast will act as the pathway for the storm system as the front becomes stationary. The low pressure system is expected to intensify as it moves up the coast possibly becoming like a nor’easter for the New England states. Very heavy rainfall is likely up there. In the meantime, Saturday doesn’t look too bad. There is only a very slight chance of rain on Saturday so if you have any yard work to do, Saturday is the day to do it. Saturday will also┬ábe the warmest day for a while. I’ll have more on the extended forecast in my Sunday morning post.
