We are in a warm and rain-free pattern for the next couple of days. High pressure is just offshore of our coastline, and it’s keeping our atmosphere a bit stable throughout the next day or so. Highs today will reach the upper 70s (with some 80s splashed in)…well above the average for this time of year.
Tomorrow, expect most of the area to hit the 80 degree mark…as temps really climb ahead of an approaching cold front. We’re not expecting any records to be broken since the Record High in Norfolk for Tuesday, April 11th is 88 degrees set in 1978. Our forecast is calling for mainly low 80s in our area.
The temperature Trend goes from 80s on Tuesday….to 60s by Thursday due to the previously mentioned cold front that’ll cross our area on Wednesday.
The front will move in through Wednesday afternoon and early evening…sparking some scattered showers ahead of and along it.
Here’s a closer view of our area, and notice that the rain coverage isn’t looking extensive…but definitely worthy of carrying the umbrella just in case a shower finds you. Severe weather isn’t expected with this system, and rainfall estimates should be less than .25″ for most locations.
Our area will be rain free for the rest of the workweek, but we’re watching your Easter Weekend as a few spotty showers may be possible…stay tuned. Regardless, your Easter Weekend looks mild with temps in the 70s.
If you’re looking for something to do, the Norfolk Tides play tonight at Harbor Park! It starts at 6:35PM.
