Dominic Brown’s Live VIPIR Forecast
Tracking rain….As we move through this Sunday, our weather will be a bit unsettled as an area of low pressure approaches the area from the west. As a result, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies today. Most of the day will be dry. High temperatures will be in the lower 50s. Overnight lows will be in the mid 40s.
As low pressure moves offshore just to our north late tonight, rain will begin moving in through Monday morning. Based on our forecast models, most of this event will be rain. It’s not out of the question that a few areas could see a couple of snowflakes mixed in with the rain early Monday morning, but overall, this will be a rain event since our temperatures will rising well above freezing through the day. Highs on Monday will be in the mid and upper 50s in fact. The best snowfall potential will be for our friends in the Northeast U.S. Otherwise, pack your rain gear Monday. Some of the rain could be heavy at times.
By Tuesday, we’ll see sunshine with highs dipping into the mid 30s. Temperatures will climb back into the lower 50s on Wednesday. Then, all eyes will be on another weather system that will ride along our coast late Thursday, which could give way to a rain/snow mix in a few areas. Stay tuned.
Today: Mostly Cloudy. Milder. High temperatures in the lower 50s. Winds: S/SW 5-10 mph.
