Memorial Day Weekend is here! Temperatures will be cooler today and then much warmer on Sunday and Monday. Highs will be in the 70s at the beach, and in the mid-80s inland today. We should see mostly sunny skies and dry weather today. Overnight there could be a quick passing thunderstorm around 1 AM.
By Sunday morning, the rain will be long gone. Then it will be much more humid and hotter. Highs will climb to the 90s Sunday with a southwest wind around 10 mph.
If you have plans to paddle out (I know I do) this weekend, the waves are looking pretty good. The Northeast swell builds in later today and tomorrow. It peaks on Monday. This weekend is also the first Surf Competition for Virginia Beach in 2019.
