THE COLD CONTINUES BUT CURRENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE COLD WILL LEAVE JUST IN TIME A MAJOR STORM ARRIVES… THIS SHOULD MEAN THAT WE SEE PREDOMINANTLY RAIN FROM THIS SYSTEM HERE IN HAMPTON ROADS… ANY DEVIATION IN THE TRACK OF THIS STORM CAN CHANGE THE FORECAST SO STAY TUNED

Sunday will be another very chilly day here in Hampton Roads despite ample sunshine. Winds shouldn’t be a major factor, however. The low pressure area that skirted the coast o the Carolina’s brought some snow to the Southern Outer Banks late on Saturday. That storm has moved out to sea. Monday should be another dry and chilly day. The next system that is forecast to affect our region is expected to cause an increase in clouds Monday night. A low pressure system is expected to move up the coast spreading moderate to possibly heavy precipitation in our direction later Tuesday into Wednesday. The exact timing of the onset of the precipitation isn’t certain as of yet, but right now, forecasters believe that we will only receive rain from this system due to milder air being drawn in from off of the ocean. The exact track of this system will determine how much precipitation we receive and what form it will be in areas to our west and north. If you are traveling to the north and west over the next few days, make sure you pay attention to the forecast as some parts of the Northeast may see a significant snowstorm. Right now, forecasters believe that some of the major cities of the Northeast will escape the heaviest snow due to a changeover to rain, BUT THAT CAN CHANGE! After this storm goes by, it appears that temperatures will be seasonable for the remainder of the week.
