Arthur Is Over, Now Let’s Enjoy The Sunshine

Hurricane Arthur did cause some damage across the Outer Banks to businesses and some homes. I am happy the storm was moving through at 20 mph yesterday, if it was slower, there would have more areas with heavy damage. Right now Arthur is a tropical storm:

I wanted to zoom out the map and show you how far north Arthur is going to travel, all the way to Greenland! I bet by the time it gets that far north it will dump a few feet of snow over that region. Anyway, back to Hampton Roads, our weather will be calm and pleasant today. Highs should be in the upper-70s to low 80s across our area. If you want to go to the beach today the threat for rip currents is still high.

The swell from Arthur is going to drop during the day. Winds will be onshore likely all day at 10-15mph.

Dry air has also moved back in to our area, today and tonight the humidity levels will remain low. Tonight for fireworks displays, temperatures will be in the mid-60s, so you might want to grab a sweatshirt on the way out the door. Tomorrow morning a few cities may see low temperatures as cool as 49 degrees! Most areas will have lows near 59-63. Then near the water lows will be near 70. Tomorrow, we will be sunny again with highs near 85.

Enjoy your weekend!
