A STRONG COLD FRONT MAY BE PRECEDED BY STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ON MONDAY… TROPICAL STORM DEBBY IS THE 4TH TROPICAL STORM OF THE SEASON WHICH IS THE EARLIEST EVER IN RECORDED HISTORY… HER TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECAST IS VERY UNCERTAIN

Sunday should be a typical summer day here in Hampton Roads with plenty of sunshine, moderate to high humidity levels, and temperatures peaking in the upper 80’s. Thunderstorm chances will be increasing as we head into Monday as a cold front and upper-level trough approach the East Coast. Severe storms are possible so please be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions. The front moves off of the coast Monday night and Tuesday with cooler and drier conditions following the frontal passage. The other big weather story is Tropical Storm Debby┬áin the Gulf of Mexico. The storm is undergoing some wind shear, which is not allowing the storm to intensify that rapidly. The forecast track is very uncertain at this time. Computer models take it anywhere between Texas and Florida. Heavy rain is already falling along portions of the Gulf Coast. The storm’s intensity forecast is also very uncertain at the present time. If you have plans to head anywhere along the Gulf Coast, you should monitor the latest forecast with the National Hurricane Center. As I stated earlier, this is the earliest 4th storm of the season in the Atlantic Basin since records were kept… Our extended forecast does depend on Debby’s eventual track. The forecast currently calls for a cool down on Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a significant warm-up later in the week. That’s it for now. Have a great day.
