Tracking scattered rain, then plenty of sun….It’s been a dreary Easter, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. However, for this Sunday evening, expect more scattered rain across Hampton Roads and Northeastern NC, all courtesy of an area of low pressure riding along a front offshore. With this setup, along with an approaching cold front from the west, scattered showers are likely tonight as well. Some heavy downpours are possible from time to time. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies and areas of patchy drizzle and fog. Low temperatures will hold fairly steady into the low and mid 50s.  A few lingering showers are possible early Monday morning. But once we move into the afternoon, high pressure will build across the area, allowing drier air to move in and our skies to gradually clear. High temperatures will warm into the mid 70s. Winds will be breezy from the west between 10 and 20 mph by afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday will have mostly sunny skies with highs in the low and mid 60s. We’ll be back in the 70s by Thursday and Friday with a chance of rain.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (70%). Low temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Monday: Chance of AM Rain (30%). Otherwise, gradual clearing. Warm and Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: N-W 10-20 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly Sunny and Cool. High temperatures in the lower 60s. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.
