Can’t complain about today – we had plenty of sunshine along with more seasonable temperatures!
We’ll actually trade highs in the 60s for highs in the mid-70s on Thursday. But of course with the warmer weather, comes the wetter weather – Thursday will not be a washout, however there will be some scattered showers.
You can see our Future Trak Forecast shows some splashes of green indicating that 4 in 10 chance for a shower. Don’t be surprised if you hear a few rumbles of thunder – there could be an isolated thunderstorm or two tomorrow afternoon. It’s possible a thunderstorm could produce some gusty winds, so we’ll keep an eye on conditions! Showers aside, expect partly sunny skies with temperatures warming into the mid-70s.
Even though temperatures will be well into the 70s, it’s not going to be humid since dewpoints will only be in the mid to upper-50s.
Scattered showers will continue through Thursday evening. By Friday morning, a cold front will approach Hampton Roads, so that will give us the best chance for widespread showers with embedded thunderstorms.
Make sure you grab an umbrella before you head out Friday since the whole day looks a bit messy. Expect intermittent showers throughout the day with an occasional thunderstorm. No strong or severe storms expected.
In the wake of that cold front, temperatures will initially start in the low-50s Friday morning, then gradually fall into the low-40s by your evening commute.
Brace yourself for this next sentence.
With some moisture in the atmosphere and temperatures near freezing, it’s possible we could see some showers and/or flurries Saturday morning.
IF you see flurries, don’t worry, the ground is too warm for anything to stick! I know it’s a jagged pill to swallow, knowing we could from 70s to flurries in just 48 hours!
So glad I’m in the business of sales, not management.
