A SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH HAMPTON ROADS ON SUNDAY… CLOUDS DOMINATE ON SUNDAY BUT TEMPERATURES START OUT MILD… THE WEEK AHEAD WILL FEATURE SEASONAL TEMPERATURES WITH PREDOMINATELY DRY CONDITIONS

A slow moving cold front will move through on Sunday possibly accompanied by some showers or light rain. Mild air that has been flowing northeast ahead of the cold front melted much of the snow. The winds will swing around to the N-NW behind the front which will drop temperatures. No bitter cold is expected early this week but temperatures will fall to more seasonal levels. The overall weather pattern this week seems quiet at least for most of the week. A cold front is expected to pass through the Mid-Atlantic States during the mid-week period, but as it looks right now, significant precipitation is not likely with this frontal passage. As we head towards the weekend, forecasters will be watching for a potential developing low pressure system somewhere near the East Coast. The exact position of where this low develops will determine what area receives precipitation and the precipitation type. Details are very sketchy at best right now. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
