A FRONTAL SYSTEM SHOULD BRING SOME SHOWERS SATURDAY NIGHT… ON SUNDAY, WE DRY OUT… MUCH COLDER WEATHER IS ON THE WAY NEXT WEEK… BUT QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT HOW COLD WILL IT GET?

A frontal system will move through Hampton Roads early Sunday morning. Showers will precede and accompany the front. Based on what I’ve seen, forecasters don’t think that we will see a lot of rain. Showers could linger Sunday morning, but right now, it appears that the front will make some good progress through the area and be out to sea by later in the day. Note that models have slowed the progress of this system over the last few days. Earlier in the week, forecasters were prediciting rain today during the daytime hours (Saturday). Now, the sun should rule for much of the day.  Ahead of this system, temperatures will be fairly mild for January on Saturday. They drop slightly on Sunday. The upcoming week’s forecast is quite tricky. A low pressure area is expected to form off the Southeast Coast on Tuesday but models differ as to how close it will come to our area. I’ll have an update on that on Sunday. Models are still indicating a change to the pattern later next week to a very cold one for the east but questions remain as to how cold it will be and whether we will see any wintry precipitation.
