MILDER AIR MOVES INTO HAMPTON ROADS… ANY PRECIPITATION THAT FALLS SUNDAY WILL BE IN THE FORM OF RAIN… COULD THERE BE SOME SNOW ACCUMULATION LATE ON MONDAY?

The large high pressure that brought the frigid temperatures to the Mid-Atlantic States is now moving offshore as a low pressure area moves to our north with a trailing cold front that will move through our region Sunday night. What does this mean for us? A lot of clouds, milder air, and maybe some light rain showers. Southwesterly winds around the departing high and ahead of the cold front are transporting the milder air into Hampton Roads. If you have frozen pipes in your home, hopefully, they will unfreeze late on Sunday, but that is not a certainty. The cold front is expected to stall and a weak low pressure area may develop to our southwest on Monday. This low will move through the area possibly producing a period of precipitation on Monday. This is where the weather forecast gets a little tricky. Temperatures may be marginally cold enough for snow in some parts of Hampton Roads late on Monday or areas to our north and west. While forecasters don’t think that this will be a major snow event for our area, stay tuned as some areas could get some accumulation of snow. I’ll have an update on this situation Monday morning.
