Despite a little bit of patchy fog, it was a nice start to the day – a few clouds with temperatures in the upper-50s to low-60s!
We had a great shot of the sunrise on Tower Cam 10:

Morning clouds will give way to plenty of sunshine this afternoon across Hampton Roads. If you’re going to be in North Carolina, expect more of a mix of sun and clouds along with a slight chance for a pop-up shower or two. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not going to be a wet afternoon in North Carolina, but a few clouds may attempt to squeeze out a quick shower.
If you’re going to be in Ahoskie, Edenton, Elizabeth City – those are the places that have the best chance of seeing a quick pop-up shower.
Expect mainly clear skies overnight with temperatures dropping back into the mid-50s. It’ll be a great night to open the windows and get some fresh air IF your allergies aren’t bothering you! Just a warning, the pollen count will be high today and tomorrow!
We’ll start with mostly sunny skies Sunday morning. You can see on our Future Trak Forecast, we’ll have a mix of sun and clouds by Noon. As our next storm system approaches, clouds will fill in through the afternoon. Most of your Sunday will be dry, so don’t cancel any outdoor plans!
After 7 PM, rain will start to spread into North Carolina and Hampton Roads. Suffice to say, if you’re going to be out Sunday night, make sure you have an umbrella handy! You’ll definitely want an umbrella as you head out the door Monday morning since we will be tracking steady rain through your morning commute.
Monday is actually going to be an interesting day. As I said, we’ll start with rain Monday morning, but the rain will taper off just after your morning commute. Between 9 AM to 3 PM, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid to upper-70s. Here’s the problem – the sun, coupled with a passing trough, will destabilize the atmosphere and lead to the re-development of showers and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center is already showing a slight chance for some isolated strong storms Monday afternoon with the primary threats being gusty winds and hail. Take this with a grain of salt for now – things can certainly change between now and then. Just know that we’ll keep a close eye on it over the weekend!
In the meantime, have a great weekend!!
