We recieved around 1/2 inch of rain last night across Hampton Roads. This morning you may be seeing a little mist, but that should come to an end shortly. We will see decreasing clouds as dry air moves in from the northwest. Temperatures are chilly, we started our day with temps in the 30s and will only warm up to 50 today. Tomorrow looks warmer with highs in the mid 50s. Some rain is possible tomorrow afternoon.

Rain moves in Sunday afternoon.

The rain could start as early as 3 PM for Hampton Roads as light showers. The rain will continue into the night with an extra 0.25″ expected. The rain will wrap up Monday morning, then we will see clearing and cooler air for next week.

Early this morning SpaceX launched its unmanned Dragon Capsule into orbit, check out the video of the launch. Fast forward to the 48 minute mark for the launch.

It is going to be exciting to see how the rest of this test mission goes. They may have the first manned mission in July from Space Coast. Boeing is expected to test their unmanned capsule next month. Also, on April 17th a International Space Station resupply mission is scheduled to launch from Wallops Island. As that day gets closer I will let you know if there are any changes and how you can see the launch for yourself!

Have a great weekend!
