From Frost To Frosty Treats!May 14th, 2013 at 7:47 am by Jeremy Wheeler under Weather
Well, this morning was cold as predicted. We didn’t break the low record of 43 at Norfolk International. The lowest reading that I saw was 45. However, there were some very cold areas in the inland areas. Lows were in the mid 30s in Wakefield and Gloucester. Upper 30s in Chesapeake, Franklin, and Melfa. Brrr.
I only saw one or two reports of frost. However, a lot of garden vegetables still don’t do well in temps in the upper 30s. So hopefully they were ok.
Luckily the sun is out in full force this morning.
With the strong sunshine we will warm up quickly this morning. Some temperatures will jump to the upper 60s this afternoon after starting in the upper 30s. While we will see another unseasonably cool day, but there is some record heat moving into the Midwest.
It really says something when parts of southern Minnesota will be almost 30 degrees warmer than our area. We will be dry today, but a few sprinkles will try to brush the area as the warmer air starts to push in. Lows will be in the low 50s tonight with a southerly wind. Tomorrow high temps will jump to the low/mid 80s. That will be about 20 degrees warmer than today. We’ll see fair skies and winds out of the southwest at 10-20mph.
We’ll warm up even more for Thursday. Highs will be in the upper 80s. I wouldn’t even be surprised to see some 90s in the region. Definitely some ice cream weather. We’ll stay pretty warm into the weekend.
