Hampton roads will have overall enjoyable weather with clouds and sun. However, with a tropical depression #8 offshore of the OBX, we can’t rule out a chance for isolated showers…but only a 20percent coverage. The rain coverage will be more scattered for the OBX. There is a Tropical Storm Watch in place for the OBX now thru Friday as TD #8 is expected to further strengthen. The good news is that it’s strengthening will be a struggle due to dry air and wind shear. For now, it’s not expected to become a hurricane…and it’s main impacts look to be high waves, some beach erosion, and a high rip current risk for the coast. It’ll be pushed away from the coast by Wednesday into Thursday as a cold front crosses our area. Thursday does bring some showers to our forecast for Hampton Roads, but the weather looks great for Friday into the Weekend. TROPICS: We’re also watching TD #9 that’s moving into the Gulf. Stay tuned because that could bring moisture to the Carolinas by the weekend.
