AFTER SEVERAL NEARLY PERFECT WEEKENDS IN A ROW, THIS WEEKEND WILL START OUT WET BUT WE SHOULD HAVE A DECENT SUNDAY… TEMPERATURES TAKE A NOSEDIVE… SNOW IS LIKELY IN THE MOUNTAINS OF WESTERN VIRGINIA AND IT WILL EXTEND INTO THE NORTHEASTERN STATES

The last few weekends have been sunny and pleasant but our luck has run out. A cold front moved through Hampton Roads overnight ushering in much cooler weather. The front will eventually stall to our south. In the meantime, upper-level energy will be helping to develop a low pressure system to our south and west. This low will move east-northeastward towards North Carolina. This will cause overrunning precipitation to develop across VA spreading from west to east Friday into Saturday. Rain should overspread Hampton Roads Friday night and will last through part of Saturday. In addition, winds will increase as the low approaches. The rain may fall moderate to heavy in some areas. Farther to the north and west, snow may mix in with the rain at times. The highest elevations of VA may receive accumulating snow. The storm system will eventually become a nor’easter as it heads up the coast. Significant snow amounts may occur in parts of the Northeast on Saturday. And it’s not even Halloween yet! The low will move away Saturday night and Sunday so we should have a fairly nice day on Sunday, albeit on the cool side… Tropical Storm Rina is expected to drift around near the Yucatan Peninsula for the next few days. That’s it for now. Have a great day.
