CLOUDS DOMINATE OUR WEATHER THIS WEEKEND WITH RAIN A GOOD POSSIBILITY SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY… IT WILL NOT FEEL VERY SPRING-LIKE AS TEMPERATURES WILL BE WAY BELOW NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR

Today’s weather map features an expansive high pressure area over Central Canada and a frontal system draped just south of us with waves of low pressure moving along this front. The combination of mostly cloudy to overcast conditions and an unseasonably cool flow of air out of the northeast will make for a dreary day here on Saturday, but right now it doesn’t seem that we will see significant rainfall today. This changes as we head towards Saturday night as a low pressure system develops along this boundary to our south and moves along it. We should see light rain break out overnight and this rain should continue through part of Sunday. Up to our north, snow may mix in and in some areas it may be all snow for a while. Any accumulations of snow should stay confined to grassy areas and other non-paved surfaces. Here in Hampton Roads, snow is not expected but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few wet snowflakes mix in with the rain at times, especially over the peninsula. Temperatures should range from the very chilly upper-thirties to the low forties on Sunday. We should clear out on Monday with temperatures a little milder but still below normal for this time of year. The extended forecast looks fairly active and I will have details on that in my Sunday morning post.
