A STATIONARY FRONT WILL CAUSE CLOUDS TO DOMINATE OUR SKIES THIS WEEKEND… RAINFALL, IF ANY, SHOULD BE LIGHT IN MOST AREAS… TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE NEXT WEEK

First, I want to mention that last Sunday’s storm system brought over two inches of much needed rainfall to my neighborhood. And it also brought a spring snowstorm to parts of the Northeast. It’s strange how there was an early season snowstorm on Halloween in parts of the Northeast, very little snow for most of the winter and then they get a late season snowstorm, which mostly affected the highest elevations of New York state,  Pennsylvania, and the New England states… A quasi-stationary frontal boundary right now to our south will cause clouds to dominate this weekend. A weak low pressure system is expected to ride along the front possibly bringing some showers tonight and early Sunday. The highest chances of rain are just north of Hampton Roads. However, even there, whatever rain falls should be on the light side. Winds will be mostly out of the east which will keep us seasonably cool and with limited sunshine, temperatures will not be able to rise that much. On Sunday, the front will sink further south behind the low that will be moving offshore. Skies should be partly sunny on Monday A warm up is expected next week with just a low chance of showers or thunderstorms in spots. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
