Breezy WeekendNovember 16th, 2012 at 7:33 am by Jeremy Wheeler under Weather
This morning we still had some showers lingering across the region. There wasn’t much rain as we only picked up a couple tenths of an inch. It pushed out by between 6-7am.
High pressure will build in from the west through the afternoon. A weak area of low pressure to our southeast will keep pushing away.
Skies will gradually clear today with northerly winds gusting up to 20mph. Highs will be in the mid-upper 50s. There may be a few 60s inland if we’re lucky.
Tomorrow we’ll see partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 50s. The breeze will stay up and turn out of the northeast. So it will be breezy during the Grand Illumination in Norfolk. Also, clouds will build into the evening.
On Sunday the offshore low pushes back west just a bit. It will still stay offshore, but some of the showers with that will also drift back west. So we will be on the edge of an area of scattered showers on Sunday.
Because of the persistent northeast winds, we could see some nuisance to minor tidal flooding in the region. It doesn’t look too bad, but it could pose a problem for parts of highway 12 that have seen the recent beach erosion. Luckily we are coming out of new moon now. So the natural tide should subside a bit. Stay tuned as these details may change. At this time Thanksgiving looks pretty good. Mostly sunny and highs in the low 60s. I can’t wait to eat some turkey.
Have a great weekend!
