Tracking showers and storms….As we move through this Thursday, expect more unsettled weather across Hampton Roads and NE North Carolina. In fact, scattered showers are possible today but we’re not expecting a washout. A few thunderstorms are possible, too, mainly in the morning. Otherwise, expect more clouds than sun. High temperatures will warm into the lower 60s this afternoon. Tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies. A few showers are possible. Lows will be in the mid and upper 50s. On Friday, a cold front will approach the area. Ahead the front, high temperatures will soar into the lower 80s under breezy southwesterly winds. We’ll also see a mix of sun and clouds during the day, but as the front pushes closer, it will give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms late in the afternoon into the evening. Some of those storms could be strong to severe, with damaging winds and hail as the primary threats. A few showers will likely linger into early Saturday. Otherwise, we’ll see gradual clearing, with afternoon sunshine in the forecast. Highs will be in the mid and upper 60s. We’re expecting mostly sunny skies on Sunday with highs in the mid 60s.
