Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast
Wet and windy to start the work week, sunny and dry to end it.
The remnant moisture of hurricane Patricia will push in our direction over the next few days. That storm system will join forces with an area of high pressure to our north to bring us gusty east and northeast winds. As we saw earlier this month, those east and northeast winds can bring us flooding at times of high tide.
Over the next few days water may climb over its banks occasionally. We are not expecting major flooding, but even some water on the roads can cause problems.
We won’t see a lot of water falling from the sky’s on Tuesday. Most of the day will be cloudy and breezy, but dry. Late in the afternoon showers will start to roll in.
Rain will overspread the area Tuesday night and through the day on Wednesday. In fact, there could be a few embedded thunderstorms on Wednesday, as well, with high temperatures climbing into the upper 70s and the lower 80s.
Thursday will bring this morning clouds and maybe even a few early showers before the skies clear in the afternoon. We will see highs early in the day in the upper 70s and the lower 80s before falling in the afternoon.
We will enjoy plenty of sunshine on Friday and through the weekend. Expect highs in the low-to-mid 60s on Friday and Saturday, climbing into the lower 70s on Sunday.
It looks like rain will return on Monday.
