Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast
Heat, humidity and storms. It’s the recipe for July in Hampton Roads. And that’s what we can expect over the next few days.
We may see a few isolated storms on Tuesday evening and a little patchy fog overnight.
Our storm chances go up a bit on Wednesday, along with our temperatures. Expect southwest winds, highs in the lower 90s with a 25-30% chance of storms.
Our stormiest day of the week is looking like Thursday. Ahead of a cold front, we’ll see temperatures back in the lower 90s. As that cold front crosses the region, we have a good (60%) chance for storms. And some of those could be on the strong-to-severe side. The biggest threats will be from damaging winds and localized flooding.
A few storms may linger into Friday. But the end of the work week is looking a little cooler and calmer.
