WARM WEATHER ON FRIDAY WILL GIVE WAY TO A COOLER WEEKEND AS A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH… NO SIGNIFICANT RAIN IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND

A warm west-southwest flow of air will make Friday a day that you probably wish you weren’t at work. Down sloping winds¬†are partly the reason why it will be in the upper 70’s today. When winds flow down the slopes of mountains, the air warms. This effect is more pronounced east of the Rocky Mountains. Denver, Colorado is a place where this happens with more frequency and these warm winds can melt snow very rapidly. A backdoor cold front is expected to move through Hampton Roads Friday night switching our winds to the north. This will make Saturday a cooler day. No significant rain is expected with this cold frontal passage, although there might be a light shower early on Saturday in some spots. The weekend looks nice for the most part with seasonal temperatures. Looking ahead, rain chances will most likely increase as we get to Wednesday and Thursday of next week.¬† Have a great day and thanks for reading.
