There’s some cooler weather on the way. It’s about time to pull out those sweaters, and to buy the big packets of hot chocolate. But hold on! We have one more warm day to get through first. High pressure is in the region, but it is pushing offshore. This will allow for more southerly winds today. That will help to get the temperatures going into the upper 70s to low 80s in the region.
As you can see there were some heavy duty showers over Kentucky and Tennessee. As these move east, most of them will fall apart. A few of them may survive and push in by the early evening. 1 or 2 may even reach our far inland areas late in the afternoon. However, the models only show a stray shower possible during that time. The bulk of the rain will come in after midnight. The cold front will move through the region early tomorrow morning. There will be scattered showers moving through with the front. They will linger behind the front until about 10-11am. Here is what Future Trak shows for 7 am and noon tomorrow.
Notice at noon that there may be a stray shower along the coast, but it will push out shortly after that. We are only looking at a couple tenths of an inch of rain in the region. The cold front will quickly dive to the east/southeast.
This will allow us to quickly dry out during the afternoon. However high temps won’t be too cool just yet because the winds will be more out of the west than the north. So temps will still be able to rise into the mid 70s. Saturday night will be a different story. We’ll have clear skies, lighter winds, and dry air. So low temperatures will drop down to the 40s area-wide. We may even see some low-mid 40s inland. It will be chilly. Especially if you are in a tent. Yep. I’ll be camping this weekend with the scouts. Also it will be chilly for the JT Walk down at the oceanfront on Sunday. Also… the Crawlin Crab events up in Hampton will be chilly. We’ll only see highs in the mid 60s on Sunday, but at least we’ll have plenty of sunshine. We’ll warm up to the low 70s by early next week, but Monday will also start with lows in the 40s. Ladies and gentlemen…get your hot chocolate mugs ready! Or your pumpkin flavored latte mugs. Either way.
