Tracking several rain chances this week….After an absolutely gorgeous weekend, get ready for unsettled weather to move in as we approach the Christmas holiday. On Monday, we’re expecting more clouds than sun. An isolated shower is possible, but most areas will be dry. High temperatures will rise into the mid 60s. Then, as we move through Tuesday and Wednesday, have your umbrella handy. We’re tracking a good deal of rain as a trough of low pressure develops along the coast. That setup will transport moisture our way, mainly in the form of scattered rain. Some of the rain could be heavy at times. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 60s. By Wednesday, several areas may touch the lower 70s. More rain is expected as a cold front approaches the area on Christmas Eve. Highs will rise into the mid 70s. Then, on Christmas Day, the front will stall over the Carolinas. As the front sags southward, we will likely not see as much rain across Hampton Roads. But areas in NE North Carolina may see slightly higher chances for rain. We’ll keep an eye on it through the week. Highs on Christmas Day will be in the mid 60s.  Have a good week!
