Tracking warmer temps and a developing coastal storm in the tropics....As we move through the early part of the work week, expect even warmer weather across Hampton Roads and NE North Carolina. High pressure will slide offshore, giving way to southwest winds. Those winds will boost our afternoon temperatures into the low and mid 80s on Monday and Tuesday. We'll also enjoy plenty of sunshine on both of those days.  A weak front will slide in by Wednesday, which could spark a couple of showers or storms. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 70s. Some of us could see a few more showers by the end of the week into next weekend, but that will be dependent on the track of an area of low pressure off the southeast coast.  The low is expected to strengthen off the coast of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina by the mid to latter part of the week, giving way to rough surf and rain to our south.  If the storm tracks to the north, there could be potential impacts for North Carolina and parts of Hampton Roads.  Stay with NewsChannel 3 as we keep you VIPIReady through the week.
