ANOTHER MAJOR STORM SEEMS LIKELY THIS WEEK, BUT CURRENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMER DURING THIS EVENT THAN IN THE PREVIOUS STORMS… COULD THERE BE ANOTHER STORM NEXT WEEKEND?

A weak cold front moved through overnight and we are now in a relatively seasonal air mass. Temperatures should peak out around 48 which is basically where they should be in late January here in Hampton Roads. All attention is turning to what could be a major storm for parts of the nation this upcoming week. There is a big difference in this storm’s expected track from the previous storms this season that will make a world of difference to the weather here in Hampton Roads and to areas to our north that have received so much snowfall this winter. The storm is expected to track well northwest of our region which means that it will pull in milder air from the south and southeast. The forecast high temperature for Wednesday is 67 degrees! So, we obviously don’t have to worry about frozen precipitation with this system and if the current forecast track holds true, even the big cities in the Northeast may see mostly rain from this storm. (Boston, MA might not be as lucky, however). There could still be changes in the forecast so stay tuned.

Backing up to today (Sunday), we’ll see a mix of clouds and sun. Monday, we should see more cloudiness. The chance of rain ramps up later Tuesday into Tuesday night. Things could get interesting next weekend as there may be another East Coast storm that brings wintry precipitation to areas that have already seen so much snow this season and areas further south. That’s far out in the future so we’ll have to see how things unfold with that potential system. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
