Rain Coat, Rain Boots, & Umbrella Needed TodayFebruary 23rd, 2013 at 8:53 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Your umbrella is going to get a full workout today. We are locked in with rainfall all morning. Some areas will see totals near 1.5″ by the time this storm system is gone.
The amounts are increasing quickly as we have a few lines of heavy rain moving across Hampton Roads this morning. I also got a report from Currituck and Blackwater with rainfall totals already 1.oo inch at 9am.
Temperatures across the Outer Banks will be in the low-60s today as the warm front lifts to the north. Areas around the front will see the highest rain totals this afternoon.
The low starts to move offshore around 3pm today and what we will have left is scattered showers across the region. We still could see some light rain at 4pm today. Tonight the skies should begin to clear out and we should see some more sunshine for our Sunday. There is a small chance for a sprinkle tomorrow morning around sunrise. So to be safe, I would expect to see the sun in full force after 10am tomorrow. Temperatures this weekend will likely stay in the mid-50s for highs. Tomorrow the wind should be out of the northwest at 5-15mph.
Enjoy the rain & stay dry!
