AFTER A VERY WARM AND SUMMERLIKE WEEKEND, THE WEEK AHEAD SEEMS TYPICAL FOR EARLY MAY

A slow moving cold front will be approaching¬†the Hampton Roads region on Monday possibly bringing some showers and thunderstorms. Potential rain amounts for the most part don’t seem to be¬†too impressive with this system. However, some locations could receive a decent amount. On Tuesday, the front limps off the coast and we should clear out. Temperatures will be cooler than they’ve been over the weekend but nothing too cool is expected. The next chance of rain may come late in the week, but at this time, it’s not a very impressive system.

A VERY WARM AND SUNNY WEEKEND IS ON TAP FOR HAMPTON ROADS… THE NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN IS LATE MONDAY… TEMPERATURES COOL DOWN A BIT BY MID-WEEK

A high pressure ridge will bring Hampton Roads a sunny and very warm weekend. Southwesterly winds will transport the warm air into the region and there is a very low chance of rain this weekend. A cold front will slowly approach the region on Monday bringing with it a chance of showers/storms. After the frontal passage, cooler air will move in on Tuesday and Wednesday. Note that the high pressure ridge is causing southwesterly winds in the Gulf of Mexico, which is bringing the oil slick closer to the Gulf Coast. Hopefully, they can stop the flow of oil and contain the oil before it causes too much damage to the environment. I’ll have an update on Sunday morning.
