A VERY DIFFICULT PRECIPITATION FORECAST FOR HAMPTON ROADS THROUGH MID-WEEK… WITH A TROUGH TO OUR WEST AND WITH HIGH DEW POINTS, THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL EXIST THROUGH TUESDAY
The early week period will feature a southerly flow with rather humid conditions. There will be a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms at any time, but there should be more in the afternoon and evening hours. With conditions like this it doesn’t take much to trigger a storm. For instance, a sea breeze boundary can be a trigger which can produce a thunderstorm. A cold front is supposed to approach the area on Tuesday but the timing and location of that front is questionable. Let’s hope that it rains over the fires in NC as the smoke will continue to plague our area with the winds out of the south and southwest.
** In the event of severe weather in you area, please consult the official National Weather Service forecast office for any severe weather watches or warnings in your area at Weather.gov.
