THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEKEND WILL BE MUCH BETTER THAN THE FIRST HALF… THE FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD IS A LITTLE TRICKY… A COLD AIR MASS THAT IS PLUNGING INTO THE U.S. SHOULD BRING CHILLY WEATHER TO THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES LATER IN THE WEEK

After a gloomy Saturday, Sunday will be bright and sunny with temperatures peaking in the mid to upper 60’s. We picked up only about a tenth of an inch of rain here in my Virginia Beach neighborhood on Saturday. That’s basically what weather forecasters predicted as we weren’t supposed to receive that much rainfall from the weak system that was moving off the coast to our south and east yesterday. Well, that system is gone and high pressure has settled into the region bringing clear skies. There seems to be some uncertainty about the mid-week period this week due to moisture that will be streaming northeastward and an approaching cold front. According to a government website that forecasts the total precipitation for the week ahead, there isn’t a lot of rainfall predicted for the upcoming week. It appears that most of the rainfall will slide to our south and east. The cold front itself may bring some showers or a period of rain but right now, the forecast is for only light amounts. We’ll see if that changes. Either way, the pattern is a chilly one for later in the week as the cold air mass that is now moving into the center of the nation moves east into our neck of the woods. So, enjoy the great fall weather while it lasts.
