Tracking rain and a big drop in temps this week….After an unseasonably warm weekend across Hampton Roads and NE North Carolina, get ready for a few changes to move our way. On Monday, we’ll likely start the day with areas of patchy fog and mostly cloudy skies. But all eyes will be on a cold front that will sweep through, giving way to scattered showers, mainly in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will climb into the low and mid 70s. A few showers could linger into early Tuesday morning. Otherwise, we’ll see clearing skies with high temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. Most of us will see mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. But by Thursday and early Friday, another cold front will move in, giving way to rain and much cooler weather. By next weekend, highs will be in the 40s!  Enjoy your week!
