Friday’s First Warning Forecast: Rain today, Cold weekend, Snow Sunday
Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Rain today, snow this weekend…A cold front will push through the area today, bringing us rain showers and a big cool down. Expect mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers this morning as the front moves through. A stray flurry is possible for the northern Eastern Shore. Showers will move out and clouds will begin to clear this afternoon. Temperatures will reach the low 60s by midday but will fall through the 50s this afternoon. It will be windy today with gusts to near 30 mph possible. Skies will continue to clear tonight with overnight lows falling to near 30.
Much colder air moves in for the weekend. Highs will only sneak into the 40s on Saturday and it will still be breezy. Expect sunshine in the morning with clouds building in during the late afternoon and evening.
An area of low pressure will slide across the SE and try to throw moisture toward the Mid-Atlantic on Sunday. Snow showers are possible Sunday morning with rain mixing for parts of the Outer Banks. Snow accumulation numbers have been trending down. Most of Hampton Roads will see a dusting or less, with up to 1” possible for parts of NE NC. Many of our northern areas will likely see no snow. Highs will only reach the upper 30s.
We are tracking a potential coastal storm for early next week. Expect a solid dose of rain moving in Monday afternoon and sticking around for much of Tuesday. This will be mainly a rain event but a few snowflakes could sneak in late Tuesday. It will be windy both days with strong gusts so tidal flooding could be an issue.
