A Few Storms Today and a Surf Update

June 8th, 2013 at 9:45 am by under Weather

We are looking at another hot and humid day with highs in the 80s this afternoon. A few showers and storms are possible around the middle of the day:

Future Trak @ 1pm

Future Trak @ 1pm

Spotty Showers are possible around 11am – 3pm today as a weak area of low pressure moves across Hampton Roads. I don’t expect much more than 1/2″ of rain today from this disturbance. For the OBX there may be a few lingering storms in to the afternoon.

The rain chance will diminish after sunset. Tomorrow we have a small (30%) chance to see a few popup afternoon showers. Right now I am thinking the 3-5pm timeframe. Temperatures will be even warmer with highs close to 90 inland tomorrow.

 

Saturday Surf Update:

Surfers wanting to check out the leftovers from the Andrea swell should have decent 2-4ft waves today. High Tide was at 9am and Low tide will be at 2pm today, so this afternoon conditions should still be 2-3ft+ with an occasional 4ft wave as the swell recedes. Winds should be Southwest all day. Tomorrow 2-3ft waves are possible early in the morning, but count on 1-3ft waves for the afternoon.
