AFTER A VERY WARM SATURDAY, A BIG DROP IN TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED ON SUNDAY ALONG WITH WINDY CONDITIONS… THE FORECAST IS FOR DRY WEATHER UNTIL WE GET TO THANKSGIVING DAY

The average high temperature for Norfolk is around 60 degrees at this time of year and we are going to be well above that today (Saturday). High temperatures may reach into the upper 70’s in some areas of SE VA today! Winds will be light at first but they will slowly increase as a cold front approaches from the west late this afternoon and evening. After the frontal passage, winds will increase rapidly and gusts could exceed 40 MPH in some areas, especially north of our area. Not much rain is expected with the frontal passage, but there could be shower in spots. Sunday will be a blustery day with temperatures not getting much above 50 degrees! Some snow is expected in parts of the Great Lakes region and the Northeast on Sunday as the cold air moves across the relatively warm Great Lakes behind the low pressure area that will be moving through that region. Monday will be another very cool and breezy day here across Hampton Roads. As we head into the mid-week period, temperatures should slowly moderate. A low pressure system approaching from the west may bring some showers on Thanksgiving Day. As it looks now, travelers on Wednesday should have a decent day to travel here in the southern Mid-Atlantic States.

Weather headlines in other parts of the nation include a blizzard that moved across the Plains States the past few days. The extreme drought conditions in parts of the inland Southeastern States are resulting in numerous wild/forest fires. Unfortunately, not much rain, if any, is expected in that region for the next few days.

As far as the tropics are concerned, there is an area of concern in the Southwestern Caribbean Sea. Forecasters have been saying that there is a 50% chance that a tropical cyclone will develop over the next several days. We’re reaching the end of hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin. It ends on November 30th.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
