Gale Warning issued for Virginia and N. Carolina waters, Chesapeake Bay

Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Our nasty Nor’easter will continue to move away from us. That will mean lighter winds and less rain as we head into the evening hours. And I wish I could say that meant dry weather moving in for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, a small area of low pressure will swing through the region on Thursday. That will bring us a few scattered showers. Thanksgiving won’t be a washout, but there will be some wet weather to deal with.

We’ll start the day with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 30s and only warm up int the mid-to-upper 40s. Thankfully, the winds will be lighter, so it will feel more comfortable than Wednesday.

It’ll be a frigid start to Black Friday, with temperatures near freezing in many area. But we should enjoy plenty of sunshine through the day.

And we’ll even start a warm up this weekend. We’ll be back in the 50s on Saturday and 60s for Sunday and into next week.
