AFTER A SUNNY AND CHILLY SATURDAY, RAIN IS LIKELY ON SUNDAY AND IT MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES… MONDAY SHOULD BE DRY AND SEASONABLE

Wasn’t it great to see the sun yesterday (Friday)? After a stretch of damp and gloomy weather that lasted several days, we finally dried out on Friday. A little over 1.25 inches of rain fell in my backyard this past week. We’ll have another sunny day today, but it will be on the chilly side. A cold northeasterly wind is expected to slowly veer to a more southeasterly wind later today and tonight. That will bring in milder air for Sunday. A very moisture-laden system is expected to impact the Hampton Roads region on Sunday. Moisture from the North Atlantic’s Gulf Stream is expected to enhance the rainfall potentially resulting in heavy rain for parts of the region. Meteorologists expect about an inch of rain on Sunday if the forecast verifies. Rain should begin during the early morning hours on Sunday and it may become heavy during the late morning and early afternoon hours. Then, the rain will taper off later in the day. On Monday (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), we should see a dry day along with seasonable temperatures as a cold front crosses the region. Speaking of seasonable temperatures, I wanted to point out that we are now approaching the coldest time of year on average for Hampton Roads. Beginning in early February, average temperatures begin to rise reaching their peak in July. I just thought I’d give you something to be hopeful about in the middle of January.. Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
