THE WEAKENING COLD FRONT BRINGS ONLY A TRACE OF RAIN FOR MY BACKYARD… THE DISSIPATING FRONT MAY BRING ANOTHER ISOLATED SHOWER LATER SUNDAY… A STRONGER FRONT APPROACHES LATE MONDAY
As the line of showers and thunderstorms approached Hampton Roads late Saturday night, the convection weakened as the daytime heat that energized the line disappeared. Early Sunday morning, a line of lighter showers moved through only bringing a trace of rain to my neighborhood. The front is dissipating and the sun should make its appearance later Sunday. Another isolated shower is possible but widespread rainfall is not expected. Another stronger cold front will be approaching later Monday and we may see a more organized (and hopefully heavier) line of showers and storms out ahead of it. Before the cold front, Monday will be a warm and increasingly humid day. After the cold front passes through, cooler, less humid weather will take over later this week. Precipitation chances drop off during mid-week and we probably won’t see a chance of rain until next weekend. Let’s hope that we get some rain this week as we have not seen significant widespread rainfall across Hampton Roads since May 28th.
