Staying Cool for the Next Few Days

November 14th, 2012 at 12:21 pm by under Weather

We are starting to get a little more sunshine after the last 24 hours consisting of rain and clouds from that strong cold front that moved across Hampton Roads. Now as we look ahead I would expect that continual north and or northeast winds. That will keep the chance for tidal flooding, but it will be very minor at most.

High Pressure Keeps us Dry and Cool

With these north winds do not expect warmer temperatures as our highs are going to remain in the 50s for the week ahead.  We should keep this dry pattern until late Saturday. By then, there might be a new storm system developing offshore. We should be dry on Saturday but on Sunday, some rain and gusty winds will be in the forecast. Right now the computer model are disagreeing on the strength of this storm so what it might bring is some appreciable  rain and some minor tidal flooding.

The area still seeing the most significant impacts is the area surrounding Rodanthe. As you can see in the picture below the ocean is still flowing over the only route Hwy 12. This is one area I will want to watch close, if we continue to have these NE winds conditions may only get worse.

We will track this next storm over the days ahead,
