Temperatures will be very mild overnight with lows in the 60s. We will actually see temperatures warm a bit as the night progresses. Conditions should be mostly dry, but cloudy. It will be on the breezy side with winds out of the southwest at 10-15 mph, with higher gusts.

Even warmer air will move in for Tuesday and winds will pick up a bit out of the southwest at 15-25 mph. As of now, it looks like most of the daylight hours should remain dry with a few breaks in the clouds possible. Temperatures will warm to the low 70s. Our record high in Norfolk of 78 degrees set back in 2007 should be safe. Rain chances will increase by late afternoon and evening as a strong cold front approaches. Temperatures will fall into the low and mid 40s overnight with rain.

Rain will be possible early Wednesday. Again, doesn’t look like it’ll be a washout. You’ll need the umbrella as you head to work or school, but won’t on the way home. Skies will clear out overnight and temperatures will plummet into the upper 20s to near 30. This will make for a very cold start Thursday. Expect wind chills in the 20s as you head out the door. Overall, it is going to be a frigid day with many of us struggling to get out of the 30s! The gusty northerly wind will not help. At least skies will be sunny.

An area of low pressure will move in for the end of the work week and weekend with increasing rain chances. Temperatures will trend a bit warmer with highs in the mid and upper 50s.
