Wet Week AheadApril 27th, 2014 at 9:24 pm by Tiffany Savona WAVY under Weather
After a warm and sunny weekend, we are looking at a pattern change for the upcoming work week. We are going to see a large dip in the jet stream, as a trough develops across the central U.S. The upper level energy is going to slow down and continue to spin, which means the entire storm system will slow down as well. A cold front will move into Hampton Roads on Thursday, but until then, we will see several round of showers and storms move across the region.
The clouds will increase overnight and we should start off with mostly cloudy conditions Monday morning. Showers are possible anytime after 12 PM Monday. Rain will be scattered during the afternoon and evening hours. Here is what our Future Trak model has at 5 PM tomorrow.
A warm front will move through Hampton Roads late Tuesday. Once the front moves through, temperatures will climb into the 70s and moisture values will be on the rise. Best chance for rain looks to be Wednesday into Thursday as the cold front gets closer to us.
Along with the heavy rain threat, we are going to be watching the threat for thunderstorms. If we are going to see any strong to severe storms, it will most likely be Wednesday afternoon/evening. It all depends on the timing of the cold front. Stay tuned! Make sure you have the umbrella handy over the next few days.
