DRY WEATHER SHOULD HOLD MOST OF THIS WEEKEND… HOWEVER, AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER SEEMS LIKELY BEGINNING ON MONDAY

High pressure should hold on long enough so that we have a dry weekend but wet weather will be at our doorstep on Sunday. Western portions of Virginia will most likely see the rain as we head into Sunday afternoon. Once the wet weather moves into Hampton Roads (which should be Monday morning), weather forecasters currently believe that our rain chances will be elevated for several days next week. That doesn’t mean it will rain each day in all parts of our region. It just means that we will have a chance of rain each day. With the onshore wind this weekend and the clouds expected early next week, no really warm air is expected for a while. I looked at the precipitation potential over the next few days from the HPC, and it appears that areas to our southwest are going to receive the most rainfall. The weather systems that will be bringing the wet weather looks like they will be quite complex, so there may be changes to the forecast as we go through the next few days. So, enjoy the weekend and make sure you get that yard work done.
