Tornado Watch Tonight, Plus Rainy and Cooler on Sunday

First, let’s talk about the Tornado Watch that has been issued for Northampton County, Bertie County and Hertford County until 1 AM Sunday.

Tornado Watch

Tornado Watch In Effect Until 1 AM Sunday

This watch doesn’t include any counties in Virginia. The severe weather threat is very low for the rest of the area. I am tracking a cluster of severe storms near Raleigh that is moving northeast. These storms are feeding off of some instability across central North Carolina. The hi-res models show this cluster moving into Virginia closer to midnight, but I think it will be weaker by then. Stay tuned!

It has been a soggy Saturday across Hampton Roads, but at least it was warm outside. High temperatures were in the 60s and 70s. More rain is possible tomorrow, but it will be much cooler. Rain will be scattered on and off during the day tomorrow. We may see a few light showers early Sunday morning, but there are slightly better chances during the afternoon.

Best chances for rain tomorrow will be north of the metro, closer to the area of low pressure. Rain shouldn’t be as heavy or as widespread as earlier today. Once the cold front moves in tomorrow morning, temperatures will begin to fall. We will likely see our high temperature around 60° shortly after midnight. It will be mild in the morning and chilly in the afternoon with a strong westerly breeze blowing at 10-20mph.

Thankfully the cooler weather will be short-lived, as the warmer weather will return by early next week. I will have a full update on tonight’s severe weather threat coming up on WAVY News 10 at 10 on FOX43 and WAVY News 10 at 11.

    Could you perhaps one day explain how, with less than one inch of rain, I have 4 inches of water in my yard? How does that happen?

    Love the blogs….thanks! But wondering where the 7 day forecast only shows 3 days??? I hope that’s not a permanent change. I like to look at the week ahead.
