TEMPERATURES RETURN TO MORE SEASONAL LEVELS THIS WEEKEND… RAIN CHANCES INCREASE MONDAY NIGHT

After a chilly week, temperatures will be more seasonal today (Saturday). Seasonal in mid-January┬ámeans highs in the upper 40’s and lows around 30. A southwest wind will be transporting in the milder air. A cold front will drop temperatures slightly on Sunday. On Monday, the forecast gets a bit tricky. Computer models diverge on their solutions for Monday. A low pressure system should be heading through the Great Lakes region while another one is expected to be moving along the Southeast Coast. Right now, it appears that most of Monday should remain dry but rain chances will be increasing later in the day. Rain should overspread the area Monday night and continue into Tuesday. Temperatures in Hampton Roads should be warm enough for an all rain event but to our north and west, some sleet can be expected, especially when the precipitation starts. I’ll have an update on Sunday.
