Our weather pattern has changed a little bit in the past few days, but one thing still remains the same. The atmosphere is packed with moisture and there’s a good chance for heavy rain today.
This morning we are seeing some of the rain across Hampton Roads. In the past three days we’ve seen more than 4 inches of rain across the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula. Other areas have seen around an inch.
For today, a stationary front is stuck right on top of our area. That will help generate more rain this afternoon and evening. Downpours are likely as the rain develops.
The stationary front will help to develop more rain later today and tonight.
Rain totals by tomorrow morning could exceed 2″. Slow moving thunderstorms could produce twice that amount, this could lead to flash flooding.
More rain is expected throughout our day tomorrow. The heaviest rain will be in the morning on Sunday, but again in the afternoon lingering showers are likely.
