A FRONTAL SYSTEM IS GOING TO MAKE FOR A CHALLENGING FORECAST THIS WEEKEND… SUB-TROPICAL STORM FAY DEVELOPS SOUTH OF BERMUDA… A FRONTAL SYSTEM SHOULD PRODUCE A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY THUNDERSTORMS BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK

The sound of heavy rain woke me up this morning. An area of rain moved through most of Hampton Roads and dumped about a third of an inch of rain in my backyard. A quasi-stationary frontal boundary will make for a rather difficult forecast this weekend. Although the rain has moved off the coast this morning, another round of showers are possible this afternoon. Temperatures in your neighborhood will be highly dependent on the exact position of the front and, of course, cloud cover. The front is expected to move south of the area on Sunday, which should result in improving conditions. North to northeasterly winds should make Sunday a cooler day. A light shower or sprinkle cannot be ruled out on Sunday. A stronger trough and frontal system will approach the region on Tuesday bringing another chance of showers and possibly thunderstorms… Sub-tropical storm Fay has formed south of Bermuda. The storm is expected to move north and then northeast staying well offshore. Please see my Weather Fact “What is a Sub-Tropical Storm” in the Weatherdudes.com site. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
