ANOTHER GREAT WEEKEND IS IN STORE FOR HAMPTON ROADS… A WARMING TREND IS EXPECTED EARLY NEXT WEEK WHICH WILL BE FOLLOWED BY COOLER WEATHER LATER IN THE WEEK

The weather this weekend will be nearly perfect for the middle of October. Winds will be a bit brisk on Saturday due to the pressure gradient around a low pressure system just north of the Great Lakes. The winds will lessen on Sunday as the low moves away. Humidity levels have come down which will make it feel quite comfortable in the afternoons both days of the weekend. Temperatures are expected to trend upwards early next week ahead of a strong cold front that will be approaching from the west. Some showers and possibly thunderstorms are expected with this frontal passage which should be during the mid-week period. Temperatures behind that front will be much cooler… The total rainfall this past week in my backyard was around a quarter of an inch. Most of this rain fell on Thursday. That was the day that the two¬†tornadoes touched down in New Kent and Louisa Counties in Virginia. That part of Virginia had a 5.8 magnitude earthquake and a hurricane¬†in August, and now a tornado. Unreal!… The tropical Atlantic is quiet but there are two areas of concern. One is just east of the Yucatan Peninsula and the other is out in the Eastern Atlantic. That’s it for now. I’ll have an update on Sunday.
