AFTER A VERY WARM AND HUMID TUESDAY, COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER IS EXPECTED WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY

The remnants of Tropical Storm Ana are moving well out to sea. Approximately a third of an inch of rain fell in my neighborhood from Ana on Monday. The bulk of the heavier rain moved to our south and east. The Outer Banks of NC had much more rain from Ana. This pre-season tropical cyclone does not mean that we will have a very active hurricane season. History shows that there is no connection with early season tropical cyclone development and the actual number of storms that develop throughout the upcoming hurricane season… Thunder woke me up this morning as showers and thunderstorms developed in parts of the Southside Hampton Roads and NE NC. Another third of an inch of rain fell from these early morning storms… Tuesday is shaping up to be a very warm and humid day here in Hampton Roads. A southwesterly flow out ahead of a cold front is pumping the heat and humidity into our region. We could even break the 90 degree mark in some areas today. But the heat will be short-lived as cooler weather will move into the region behind the front along with lower humidity levels. The approaching front may trigger showers and thunderstorms later Tuesday and severe weather is a possibility, so make sure you monitor the local media and the National Weather Service forecasts and statements. The weather Wednesday through Friday should be very nice with cool temperatures and lower humidity levels. The weekend weather is questionable right now. It seems that we are going to enter a period of unsettled weather with occasional chances of showers and storms. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
