Unsettled Weather PatternJune 8th, 2014 at 9:18 pm by Tiffany Savona WAVY under Weather
Our luck of seeing good weather on the weekends continues! We saw highs in the upper 70s/lower 80s yesterday and highs were in the mid to upper 80s today. I am tracking changes for the upcoming work week ahead. We are heading into an unsettled weather pattern that will last through the end of the week. Temperatures and humidity levels will also be rising over the next few days. An upper level trough is bringing stormy weather to the Central Plains right now and that same storm system won’t move into Hampton Roads until Friday or Saturday. Until then, we will have chances for rain in the forecast each day, although none of the days look to be a wash-out. Here is the set-up.
A warm front and a cold front are currently moving through western Virginia and western North Carolina.
The warm front should move through Hampton Roads tonight. We may see a stray shower as this happens, but most, if not all, will stay dry. The line of showers and storms to our west should continue to weaken as it pushes east. The cold front will move into central Virginia by tomorrow morning and then stall out and become stationary. With this boundary nearby and plenty of heat and humidity, we could see an isolated shower/storm pop up late tomorrow afternoon. Rain chances are only going to range between 20%-30% because most of the activity should remain to the west of us, close to that boundary.
This front should move more to the east on Tuesday. Rain chances will be a little bit higher on Tuesday since that front will be draped across southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina.
Future Trak has more coverage, but notice that the rain is still very hit or miss. Hit or miss showers and storms will be the story throughout the rest of the week. It looks like we will have the highest rain chances when a cold front moves in late Friday or Saturday. Keep in mind that you may see rain one day and then not see it again the next day.
Keep the umbrella handy this week!
