No surprises here – it’s going to be another very warm and humid day! (I know surprises can be good, but they’re usually not good in the weather department..)
Another day you’ll want to make sure you:
- Stay well-hydrated.
- Wear light-colored clothes that reflect the sunshine.
- Spend time in shaded or air-conditioned areas.
- Make sure the pets don’t stay out long and certainly don’t leave them in hot locked cars!
With the searing heat and humidity, it’ll be a great beach day!
Waves will be a little higher along the Outer Banks. There will be a moderate risk for rip currents along OBX, but a low risk for rip currents from Virginia Beach to Hampton. That onshore breeze will feel nice and refreshing along the coastline!
We’ll be tracking plenty of sunshine this afternoon, so if you’re going to spend a lot of time outside, make sure you slather on the sunscreen! Temperatures will warm into the mid-80s, while dewpoints will be in the mid to upper-60s.
No breaks in the humidity for the next 4 days – dewpoints will stay in the mid-60s, so it will be uncomfortable for many people to spend extended time outdoors. It’ll take a minute and a half, but we’ll finally feel some relief by early next week.
Highs will drop back into the seasonable 70s Monday and Tuesday, but there is a trade off! Both days will feature scattered showers and thunderstorms, but it’s a small price to pay for more comfortable conditions.. and not to mention, our lawns and gardens are starting to look at little crispy!
Some great events going on across Hampton Roads this weekend:
The 5K is this evening at 6:30, you’ll definitely need to drink plenty of water since it’ll still be very warm and humid. The 8K starts tomorrow at 7 AM – expect mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper-60s. The mercury will be in the mid-70s by the time the Kids Fun Run starts at 9 AM. Sunday is the half marathon and it’s going to be another very warm and humid day. None of these conditions are ideal for runners, so be careful in this hot and humid weather!
All of these weekend events can be found on our new lifestyle website, hrScene.com!
By the way, you can find our new Super Doppler 10 Hurricane Guide in Farm Fresh stores across Hampton Roads and North Carolina! We will be signing these guides in stores over the next two weekends – you see Chief Meteorologist Don Slater at the Farm Fresh on E. Little Creek Rd. in Norfolk from 11-2 tomorrow and I will be at the Farm Fresh store at 683 Hughes Blvd. in Elizabeth City from 12-2!
