Rain Possible Christmas Eve

December 23rd, 2012 at 9:21 pm by under Weather

It has felt more like the holiday season this past weekend. It was downright COLD this morning. Lows dropped into the 20s for many locations, even coastal areas.

Lows Sunday Morning

The last time the Norfolk Airport saw lows in the 20s was about a month ago. On November 29, Norfolk got down to 28 degrees. Lows will not drop this low tonight thanks to the clouds that are moving in from the west.

Expect the clouds to increase overnight as our next disturbance gets closer to us. Monday will start off dry with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. A disturbance will move in from the west and bring us a few widely scattered showers Monday afternoon/evening.

Future Trak at Noon on Monday

Showers will develop around noon and then continue on and off throughout the day. The rain will not add up to much, rainfall totals may reach 1/10 of an inch at best. Most of the rain will be to the east of us around midnight on Christmas Eve. If you plan on attending any midnight church services, you may want to grab the umbrella just in case.

Future Track at Midnight on Christmas Eve

All of the rain clears out just in time for Christmas Day. Highs will be in the lower 50s with partly to mostly cloudy skies on Christmas. The weather pattern will remain very active this upcoming week. Another strong storm system will move into Hampton Roads early Wednesday bringing more rain and wind along with it. We will warm up ahead of the system Wednesday afternoon with highs in the 60s. Then we will see another big temperature drop with highs in the 40s on Thursday.
