Tracking sunshine and highs in the 80s….After several days of gloomy weather, we’re tracking the return of the sun and temperatures in the 80s.

As we move through our Wednesday night, expect partly cloudy skies as an area of low pressure pushes farther away from Hampton Roads. Some patchy fog is possible in spots. Low temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.

On Thursday, some of us might start the day with patchy fog, but as we move through the morning into the afternoon, we’re forecasting sunshine. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Our skies will cloud up a bit late Thursday night as a cold front moves in from the west. That front could cause a few scattered showers to develop into early Friday morning. Otherwise, by Friday afternoon, we’ll see clouds and some sun.  The front won’t cool us down.  In fact, we’ll see highs in the mid 80s.

By the weekend, expect more warm weather. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 on Saturday.  We’ll have highs in the mid 80s by Sunday.  More rain is possible by Monday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Patchy Fog Possible. Lows in the low to mid 60s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday: AM Patchy Fog. Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Late Day Showers Possible (30%). Warmer and Breezy. Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph, gusts to 25 mph.

Friday: AM Clouds and Showers (30%). Then, clearing skies. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
