Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

“Rain” and “weekend.” Two words you never want to hear together. And while there is some wet weather on the way for the weekend, it certainly will not be a washout.

A cold front will move across the region late Friday and early on Saturday. With it we expect scattered showers, with a possible thunderstorm. Most of the wet weather will move in while you are sleeping. But some showers, mist and drizzle are possible through the first part of the day.

The rain may stick around longer across North Carolina, but we should see some slow clearing in the afternoon across Hampton Roads.

That cold front will knock our high temperatures down into the mid 60s on Saturday.

Sunday is looking dry and milder. Expect partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s.

And it looks like the 70s will stick around through the work week. Expect clear-to-partly cloudy skies each day with just a slight chance for rain on Tuesday.

Weather & Health for Saturday
Pollen: Low (Ragweed, Grasses)
UV Index: 5 (Moderate)
Air Quality: Good (Code Green)
Mosquitoes: Moderate

Today in Weather History (NWS Wakefield)
