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

Tracking showers, then cool and windy….As we move through this Saturday, all eyes are on a cold front that will swing through the area. The front will spread scattered showers through the morning and early afternoon before drier air moves in behind the front later in the day, allowing our skies to gradually clear. Temperatures will fall into the low and mid 60s by afternoon. A stronger cold front will cross the area tonight, which will increase our winds from the west-northwest between 20 and 30 mph, with higher gusts along the immediate coast, so keep that in mind. Tonight will be dry with overnight lows in the low and mid 40s. On Sunday, we’re expecting mostly sunny skies. It will be chilly with highs in the mid 50s. Then, next week, we’re expecting a wild roller coaster ride with our temperatures. We’re tracking 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s for highs!

Today: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (70%). Mild. Afternoon temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Windy. Low temperatures in the low and mid 40s. Winds: WNW 20-30 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny and Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: NW 15-25 mph, with higher gusts.
