Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Some might call it a broken record. We call this summer in Hampton Roads: heat, humidity, scattered storms, repeat. That’s pretty much what we can expect over at least the next week.

As we head into the weekend, Father’s Day is looking like the better weather day.

Saturday will bring plenty of heat and humidity, followed by a very good chance (40%) of afternoon and evening storms. Expect highs, again, in the low-to-mid 90s.

A few showers and storms may stick around until early on Sunday. But the bulk of Father’s Day is looking hot and dry, with highs in the mid 90s.

And we won’t get a break from the summer weather as we head back to work. Expect highs in the low-to-mid 90s on both Monday and Tuesday, with a 25% chance for cooling afternoon/evening storms.

We may enjoy a brief break from the 90s on Wednesday, with near-normal highs in the mid 80s. But then it’s right back to the heat, humidity and storms through the rest of the work week.
