HEAVY RAIN SOAKS PARTS OF THE AREA… A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE AND A RETURN TO WARMER TEMPERATURES IS LIKELY ON MONDAY

The stationary frontal boundary that has been the cause of heavy showers and thunderstorms here in Hampton Roads is expected to dissipate and soon will no longer be a factor in our weather. High pressure is expected to build in causing our temperatures to be higher as most of us return to work on Monday. On Sunday, there will still be a chance of some showers/storms but weather forecasters don’t think Sunday will be as stormy as Friday and Saturday were. I was out of town on Saturday and when I came home, there was another 2.80 inches of rainfall in my rain gauge. On Friday afternoon, we picked up over 3 inches of rain and I was driving in that! Not fun.  So far this month, about 14 inches of rain have fallen in my neighborhood! One of my Weather Facts on this website explains how the month of July averages the wettest month of the year. I doubt we will have a wetter month this year but you never know. So, the bottom line is that rain chances will lessen over the next few days but there could be a shower or storm in spots as the atmosphere remains very moist. As I state repeatedly, it doesn’t take much of a trigger to produce a storm when you have high humidity levels.
