Yesterday was warm, but there were rain showers in the area through the early afternoon. A cold front moved through yesterday evening. Now that front is far offshore.
There is an area of low pressure in the Northeast that is causing more heavy snow to fall. It walloped the Midwest states yesterday along with parts of the Great Lakes region. In our region we are actually in-between cold fronts today. We’ll cool down a little bit, but temps won’t be too bad. Highs will be in the low-mid 50s this afternoon. We’ll have a lot of sunshine with a westerly breeze. It will run at 10-15mph. The second cold front will move through tonight. It will pass through dry. So we won’t have any precipitation. Just a few clouds. Then tomorrow we’ll have a lot of sunshine again, but the wind will pick up out of the northwest. It will run at 10-15mph with gusts to 25mph. There might be a few gusts close to 30mph. Colder air will drop in from the Midwest. So high temps will only top off in the mid-upper 40s. This will be about 10 degrees below average. We’ll be in the 20s and 30s again Thursday morning. Then high temps will only be in the upper 40s to near 50 during the afternoon. We’ll be dry. We’ll warm up a little on Friday into the 50s. Then we’ll be in the 60s over the weekend. There will be some scattered rain showers over the weekend, but it will be far from a washout.
I looked back at the high temperatures in November. I seem to remember that it was cold almost the entire time. I was wrong. In fact there was a stretch of warmer temperatures around the beginning of the month. Take a look.
So far we are about 0.8 degrees above average. However, we’ll probably temper that with the colder air coming in over the next couple of days. This data comes from the National Weather Service, and the site is Norfolk International Airport.
