Tracking summer-like weather for the Christmas holiday….It’s feeling a lot more like summertime instead of Christmas. After shattering a record high temperature Thursday, we’re expecting more warm weather across the area. It’s due in part to a moist, southerly flow, which will boost our morning temperatures into the mid 60s Christmas morning. High temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 70s by afternoon. In fact, we could break another record high. The current record is 75 degrees in Norfolk, set back in 1964. Stay tuned. Expect more clouds than sun and a chance of scattered showers on Christmas Day but no washout is in the forecast. Just keep your rain gear handy. On Saturday and Sunday, we’re not expecting as much rain. Highs will be in the 70s. Then, next week, we’ll be tracking more rain as we approach New Year’s Eve. Merry Christmas!
Thursday Night: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers Possible (20-30%). Low temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: S 10-15 mph.
Christmas Day: More Clouds Than Sun. Scattered Showers (30-40%). High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
Saturday: Partly Sunny. Isolated Shower (20%). High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
