Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

A frost advisory is in effect until Tuesday at 9am for Chesapeake, Suffolk and areas west to I-95, along with most of eastern North Carolina.

If you are not a fan of this unusually early cold weather, I have good news. The area of high pressure that has been pumping in the chili north wind will slip offshore tomorrow shifting our wins to the Southwest. That will warm us up considerably over the next few days.

On Tuesday expect plenty of sunshine with high temperatures about 15° warmer than Monday. It looks like we will top out in the upper 60s and the lower 70s.

The warming trend and the sunshine continue on Wednesday. Expect highs in the low to mid 70s.

Thursday brings a few more clouds and even warmer weather. Ahead of an approaching cold front we will climb into the mid-to-upper 70s. Some areas may even warm up into the lower 80s.

Behind that cold front, our winds will shift back around to the north sending temperatures back into the 60s. We will enjoy plenty of sunshine to end the work week on Friday but with highs only around 65°.

And the 60s continue on Saturday. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine for the first half of the weekend with highs around 67°.

Sunday is looking a little cloudier and a little bit warmer, with high temperatures in the lower 70s and a 20% chance of showers.
