Just like clock work….my 4th year at Harborfest and the 4th year it has been hot and humid with the sun beating down on Town Point Park and the waterfront! It’s a forecast you can hang your hat on..
We did see a couple of pop up showers this afternoon, but they didn’t last long. Overnight, we will be tracking passing showers and storms as a cold front sags farther south towards Hampton Roads. Most of the action will be on the northern fringe of our viewing area, i.e the Middle Peninsula, Northern Neck and Eastern Shore, but I won’t rule out a few thundershowers in the Metro or northeast North Carolina.
That front will almost stall out across southeast Virginia, so we will keep occasional showers in the forecast for your Monday. Nothing even close to a wash out, but you’ll want to throw your umbrella in the car with you as you head out the door.
Showers aside, it’ll be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the mid-70s across the Metro. Because of where that frontal boundary sets up, it’ll be cooler farther north, and warmer farther south.
Things will gradually dry out Monday night into Tuesday. Tuesday will feature partly sunny skies with a 2 in 10 chance of an isolated shower. Once again, highs will be in the mid-70s.
The mercury will start to work its way back into the 80s on Wednesday and Thursday.
The humidity will come down….slightly. Instead of dewpoints in the low to mid-70s, the numbers will fall into the mid-60s. It’ll feel humid, but not oppressive or tropical.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our WAVY tent to say HI this weekend – it was awesome meeting all of you!
