HIGH PRESSURE GUARANTEES A FANTASTIC WEEKEND IN HAMPTON ROADS… THE NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN WON’T BE UNTIL TUESDAY AT THE EARLIEST

The weather in October can be absolutely perfect. The heat and humidity of summer are basically gone and winter’s chill and storminess has yet to begin. Some of the nicest stretches of weather occur in October as expansive high pressure areas sometimes cover large portions of the North American continent. Oh, it can be stormy as there is a secondary uptick in severe weather sometimes in October and early November as the different ¬†air masses begin to clash again. The increasingly longer nights make for some very cool mornings. Leaves begin to change color which makes this month a great time to sight see in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states. One such high pressure system will literally guarantee that we will see abundant sunshine throughout the weekend. The high will move offshore next week which may allow some wet weather to move into Hampton Roads. It may actually get very wet next week, but I’ll have more on that in my weekend posts… The only action in the tropical Atlantic is Hurricane Philippe which is picking up speed as it heads harmlessly away into the North Atlantic.
