Rainfall totals were very impressive as the moisture was picked up from the Gulf of Mexico and deposited here in the Commonwealth.

The misty and rainy pattern continues as the wedge of cool air arrives off the ocean and locks in this cloudy and dreary pattern. Not much in the way of sunshine is expected this week as periods of rain and fog dominate the forecast docket.

Highs will be in the 60s and low 70s Wednesday with the NRV coming in with warmer air than the Piedmont by a couple of degrees due to the NE and East flow of wind over the Commonwealth.

Thursday will be another cloudy and gray day, but a few pokes of sunshine may allow us to see a bit of blue sky at times. Temps will rebound into the 70s in most areas.

A cold front approaches from the west late Thursday and will provide us with another round of rain late into Friday. The rain may be accompanied by some stormy weather as a cold front crosses the region.

Friday may be a bit aggressive with some stormy conditions, then we should dry out and get back to the 80s by Sunday and Memorial Day.

The Hurricane Forecast has been issued by NOAA and it looks to be an above-average season once again.

This is what has been determined as a “normal” season.

Stay Safe,
