After a warm end to the weekend, it is noticeably cooler to start the new week. It is also going to be a breezy a couple of days.  Cooler air is in place—for a day. Current temperatures still rival normal highs for the day this time of year.  But a cold front moving through and NE wind will keep a lid on temperatures, so afternoon readings will be in the mid 50s compared to 70s yesterday.  We go back up into the 70s on Tuesday.  In fact, there’s a pretty good chance we set a record for the day tomorrow.  Meanwhile they continue to deal with all variety of severe weather across the country with tornadoes to blizzard conditions across the Southern Plains.

Low pressure developing along this stalled front will keep the likelihood of showers in the forecast through at least Wednesday.  A stronger front moves through into Thursday and will usher in cooler air throughout Hampton Roads.

Shower chances start to decline by New Year’s Day, but temperatures fall.  If you’re out for New Year’s Eve we should see lows around 40, then not out of the 40s for a high on the first Saturday of 2016.
