Richmond Race And Weekend Weather

It looked great out this morning.  It was picture perfect.  Take a look!

But the photo doesn’t tell you the temperature.  We started in the upper 30s to low 40s in the region.  Donna (my weather watcher in southern Virginia Beach) said she had a little frost on her vehicle.  Not the way you want to start a morning in late April.  Temps were 15-25 degrees colder than yesterday morning.  Now…we do expect some nice weather out there this afternoon.  Highs will be in the mid-upper 60s with sunshine.  There will probably even be a few 70s inland today.  So dress in layers.

We have a huge area of clear skies and high pressure around the eastern 3rd of the United States.

Tomorrow the high pressure will provide for more nice conditions.  Partly sunny and highs in the mid-upper 60s.  We will also see fine weather for the NASCAR race in Richmond.  Skies will be partly cloudy Saturday evening.  Temps will mostly be in the 50s.  The whole region will see good weather actually.

Future Trak Saturday Eve.

On Sunday morning we’ll be down at the Virginia Beach oceanfront for the March of Dimes walk.  The walk starts at 9am.  Skies will be mostly cloudy and temps will be near 50.  There will be a bit of a breeze, so you may need a light jacket to start the walk.  We’ll have some scattered showers try and make their way into the region by Sunday evening.  Rain will be around on Monday and early Tuesday.  The models have been differing on the rain chances and the timing from Sunday through Wednesday.  This tells me that there will be moisture around, but not a lot of lift.  So stay tuned for tweaks to next week’s forecast.  Have a good weekend.

Oh and pollen is an 8 out of 12 today.  It should stay steady over the weekend.
