THE WEEKEND SHOULD BE COOLER THAN NORMAL BUT THE FORECAST HAS CHANGED REGARDING PRECIPITATION CHANCES… SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY DUE TO A COLD FRONT

It was just a few days ago when weather forecasters were predicting a very wet weekend for Hampton Roads. A nearly stationary frontal boundary to our southwest combined with upper-level disturbances¬†was supposed to bring significant rain to our region. Now, the heaviest rainfall is expected well to our south and west leaving most of us high and dry. A shower cannot be ruled out across Hampton Roads, but most of us should remain dry. An onshore flow will keep as a little on the cool side this weekend. The big question is how much clouds there will be from the system to our southwest. The next chance of showers and storms should come on Tuesday, when a cold front approaches the region. Moisture from the southwest may move in enhancing rain chances but right now that is not a certainty. Drier weather is likely later in the¬†week… The tropical Atlantic is quiet for now.
