Our mid-week nor’easter continues to move northeast away from the Mid-Atlantic, sending soaking rain into New England this morning. Even though the storm is moving away from us, we’ll still get some clouds from that system passing over central Virginia, and we’ll remain breezy again today from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph. The only part of the Commonwealth that could still get a little rain is far eastern Virginia and along the Eastern Shore. By this evening, we’ll become mostly clear again, with temperatures dipping overnight into the 40s and lower 50s like Thursday morning.
Friday will be the start of a stretch of dry and seasonally warmer days! High pressure spreads over us Friday and Saturday, sending highs into the upper 60s and lower 70s with ample sunshine. A dry cold front will pass through the Commonwealth Saturday night, keeping dry and seasonable air here through Monday.
Southerly flow will return to our region Tuesday, allowing our temperatures to climb into the upper 70s. By Wednesday, there may even be some of you around 80 degrees with that deep southerly flow kicking in ahead of our next storm system. That system looks like it will bring us a chance for rain in the late Wednesday-Thursday time window next week. We will update you on the exact expected arrival of rain as that system develops and gets closer to us next week.
Post-Tropical Cyclone Nine continues to produce very heavy rain and gusty winds in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. This weakening system should dump five to ten inches of rain in that region. Some places could get 15 inches of rain, which would mean a serious flash-flooding threat. This system is on track to re-emerge from land as it moves eastward over the western Caribbean this weekend. However, even though it will be over favorable warm waters, dry air and wind shear will prevent this system from re-forming. All signs of this system should dissipate by early next week.
Make your Thursday great! And Stay with CBS 6, We’ll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
