Rainy, breezy weather for Sunday, then a chance of snow….The weekend started sunny, but it will likely end with some rain. We’re tracking an area of low pressure that will move up the coast and strengthen as we go through our Sunday. That low will spread rain across the area, moving from south to north mainly by afternoon and evening. However, a few showers are possible over NE North Carolina in the morning.  Now, while most of this event will be rain, we can’t rule out a few snowflakes mixing in from time to time over Carolina during the day. Some of our computer models are hinting at a few more snowflakes over parts of Hampton Roads late in the evening. At this time, we’re expecting little to no accumulation because of the amount of rain we’re expecting. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the mid and upper 40s.

More rain moves in for Monday and Tuesday with another low pressure system that arrives from the northwest. However, some of that rain could turn to snow late Monday night into Tuesday morning.  We’ll keep an eye on it over the next few days.  Highs will be in upper 40s on Monday, falling into the lower 40s by Tuesday.   Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Saturday Night: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Chilly. Overnight low temperatures in the lower 30s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.
