Sunshine and warm temps….As we move through this Sunday, expect a nice day across Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina. High temperatures will climb into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. Tonight, temperatures won’t be quite as cold, reaching the mid 40s under mostly clear skies. We’ll keep the 60s in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, too. Some areas may even touch the lower 70s early in the week.  A weak cold front will move in Monday, mainly producing a few more clouds and possibly a stray shower or two. Tuesday, we’ll see partly cloudy skies. Eventually, the clouds will increase ahead of another cold front. That front will slide in Wednesday, giving way to showers and a few isolated thunderstorms. Highs will be near 60 on Wednesday, then fall into the lower 50s by Thursday. Then, by the end of next week, our weather could get a bit interesting.  Depending on the track of an area of low pressure near our area, we could see rain and a few snowflakes or rain and a lot of wind. We’ll keep a close eye on it through the week.

Today: Mostly Sunny and Mild. Breezy at times. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Clear. Not as Cold. Overnight low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.

Tomorrow: Sun and Clouds. Stray Shower (10-20%). High temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
