COLD AND BLUSTERY CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY WILL GIVE WAY TO A CALMER BUT STILL CHILLY MONDAY… A SIGNIFICANT RAIN EVENT SEEMS LIKELY TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY

An expansive high pressure system will bring us dry conditions Sunday and Monday and the pressure gradient between the high pressure area¬†and a low pressure system in far northeastern Canada will bring strong winds today (Sunday), especially early in the day. We’ll see a gradual slackening in the wind speed later today through tomorrow as the high pressure area builds into the region. Temperatures will be very chilly and highs will most likely not get out of the 30’s for most of us here in Hampton Roads. Monday will be a calmer day but temperatures will remain on the chilly side. Meanwhile a major storm system will be gathering in the Gulf Coast states. This low pressure system is expected to bring us a significant rain event from late Tuesday into Wednesday. South and southeast winds out ahead of the storm system and on the backside of the departing high pressure system will bring in milder air, so all precipitation should be in the form of rain here in Hampton Roads. Winds will also pick up as the storm system approaches. By Thanksgiving Day, we should clear out and it should be a dry but chilly day.
