A Wind Advisory is in effect for parts of Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina from 10 p.m. Saturday night until 9 a.m. Sunday.  The advisory is in effect until Noon Sunday for the VA Eastern Shore.

Sunny, cool and windy for Sunday….The weather system that brought us rain on Saturday has pushed offshore. However, another cold front will sweep through the area late Saturday night into Sunday, changing our weather in a big way. As the front crosses the area, our winds will increase from the west-northwest between 20 and 30 mph, with gusts to 40 to 50 mph, especially along the coast. Hence, a Wind Advisory is in effect for several communities through early Sunday. Those strong winds will also usher in some chilly temperatures. In fact, morning numbers will be in the low and mid 40s. Highs will only reach the middle 50s. We’ll see plenty of sunshine as we go through Sunday. On Monday, the sun will stick around. High temperatures will climb into the lower 70s ahead of a cold front. That front will slide through late Monday night, giving way to a few showers. By Tuesday, highs will sink into the upper 40s. On Wednesday, highs will climb into the upper 50s. We’re expecting rain Thursday with highs in the upper 60s.

Saturday Night: Partly Cloudy and Windy. Low temperatures in the low and mid 40s. Winds: W 20-30 mph, gusts to 40-50.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny and Windy.  Cool. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: W/NW 20-30 mph, gusts to 35.

Monday: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Late Day Showers Possible (30%). Warm and Breezy. High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: SW 15-25, gusts to 30.
