Next Cold Front and Monday’s Rain Chances

September 15th, 2013 at 8:57 pm by under Weather

Rain chances are back in the forecast on Monday after we saw a picture perfect weekend across Hampton Roads. We are tracking another cold front which will move across the region Monday afternoon bringing a chance for afternoon showers.

The cold front should be east of Richmond at Noon. We will still warm up ahead of the front with highs around 80° and southwest winds at 5-15mph. Showers will be possible after 3 PM and Future Trak has the rain becoming more widespread by 5 PM

The showers will be hit or miss so some of you may not see any rain. Rain chances are between 30%-40% tomorrow afternoon, so bring the umbrella with you just in case. Any rain should end before midnight. We do need the rain across Hampton Roads, since September has been a drier month so far. Many locations have seen less than an inch and we are already halfway through the month. This puts us about 1-2 inches below the average depending on location.

Update on the Tropics:

Hurricane Ingrid is still spinning in the Bay of Campeche with maximum sustained winds of 75mph, a minimal category 1 hurricane. Ingrid is expected to make landfall just north of Tampico Monday afternoon, but the outer rain bands are already moving into Mexico. South Texas is starting to see rain as the tropical moisture from Ingrid continues to increase and push northward. Once Ingrid moves inland, it should start to weaken. The National Hurricane Center has it weakening to an area of low pressure by Tuesday afternoon.

Humberto has become post-tropical but it is still expected to redevelop back into a tropical storm over the next few days. Humberto will be moving over warmer water and an area with less wind shear, which should promote intensification. Humberto will remain out in the central Atlantic and will not impact the U.S.
