AFTER A RAINY SATURDAY MORNING, WE WILL SLOWLY DRY OUT AND IT WILL BE MUCH COOLER

A strong cold front moved through the region overnight which was accompanied by periods of rain, some of it moderate to heavy at times. This was the same system that brought flooding rainfall and severe weather to parts of the Mid-West and Southeast. Temperatures behind the front are much cooler. The wet weather will move offshore and a slow clearing trend is expected today. Winds will eventually become NE on Sunday which will keep things cool here in Hampton Roads. This will be due to a strong high pressure system that will slowly move eastward off of the New England Coast. A low pressure system is expected to develop to our south which may bring some cloudiness back in on Monday. The main challenge for weather forecasters is whether any rain will reach this far north. I will have an update on Sunday on that possibility. Either way, it looks like we will see below normal temperatures through early next week.
