Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

A freeze warning is in effect for all of Hampton Roads and most of eastern North Carolina until 9 o’clock Wednesday morning.

Most of us will see temperatures drop to or even below freezing.

But the frigid weather won’t last long. By Wednesday afternoon winds will shift to the south, pushing temperatures into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Thursday brings even warmer weather with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. But the trade-off on Thursday is rain. Showers and storms are looking likely as another cold front moves through.

In fact, a series of cold fronts will move through on Friday and early on Saturday. Those will bring more showers and possibly a few thunderstorms.

Expect high temperatures in the upper 50s lower 60s on Friday and only in the lower 50s on Saturday, despite clearing skies.

Sunday is looking sunny but cooler with high temperatures only in the upper 40s.

But we should warm back into the 60s and 70s for early in the workweek.
