UPDATE: The severe thunderstorm for Hampton Roads has now been canceled.
Tracking strong-to-severe storms. A powerful cold front is rolling into Hampton Roads. Ahead of the storms, we're under a warm, humid air mass, with high temperatures well into the 80s for most of us. As the front moves in this evening, we may see some powerful storms develop. Within these storms, we can expect damaging winds, large hail, localized flooding and even an isolated tornado or two. The good news: the front should move through quickly, meaning most of the storms will be gone before midnight.
On Saturday, we may see a few lingering showers early in the morning, mainly across coastal North Carolina. And as we head through the morning and into the afternoon, the skies will clear and we'll enjoy plenty of sunshine. Expect highs on Saturday in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
But cooler weather arrives on Sunday, with highs in the lower 60s. We'll start the day with mainly clear skies. But with a northeast breeze, we'll see a few more clouds along the coast. In the end, we'll call it partly cloudy.
For the work week, expect highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s, with a chance for rain Tuesday and early Wednesday.
