WINTER TAKES A BREAK BUT HOW LONG WILL THE MILD WEATHER LAST?… NO MAJOR STORMS ARE ANTICIPATED THIS WEEK FOR HAMPTON ROADS

After a very long period of cold and storminess, Old Man Winter is finally taking a break. Temperatures will be mild this week with just one day of cooler and seasonable weather on Tuesday. No significant precipitation is expected this week. As low pressure systems swing by to our north, winds will increase at times, but nothing extreme is expected in the near term. Meteorologists can kick back and enjoy the relative tranquility for while. It’s a well-deserved break for them as they have been nearly continually challenged over the past couple of months. The big question for meteorologists is when will the pattern go back to a more winter-like pattern and to what degree? There’s plenty of winter left but with each passing day, the sun gets a little stronger and the days get a little longer. We all know how volatile late February and March can be so don’t put away your winter gear just yet.¬† I would simply¬†enjoy the mild weather while you can. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
