Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

If you’ve spend more than five minutes in Hampton Roads, this probably won’t surprise you: Over the next few days, we’re expecting highs in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.

Today was sharply cooler than yesterday and tomorrow will be even cooler. Many inland spots will wake up to temperatures in the 30s. And some folks may even find a little frost on their windshields. We expect plenty of sunshine through the day. But that will only help warm us up into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

On Thursday, our winds will flip around to the southeast and pick up in intensity. That will push temperatures up into the upper 60s and lower 70s. The cold front will crose the region overnight, bringing us a few showers.

After some morning clouds on Friday, the skies will clear. Expect high back in the low-to-mid 60s behind that cold front.

But warmer weather returns for the weekend. We’ll be in the lower 70s on Saturday and near 80 degrees on Sunday.

Halloween won’t be quite as warm. But we’re still expecting plenty of sunshine, with highs in the low 70s.
