A strong cold front will move through the area this evening and tonight. Some parts of Hampton Roads could see periods of heavy rain, accompanied by gusty winds starting this afternoon and going through the overnight hours. Temperatures will fall from the 70s into the 50s by this evening.
After the front passes, look for a sharp drop in temperatures. Tuesday’s high temperatures will be nearly 30 degrees colder than Monday’s. On Christmas day, some areas may not reach 40 degrees by the afternoon.
