KJ's First Warning Forecast

Strong to severe storms possible Sunday evening. Strong wind gusts is the primary threat.

The line of showers with strong wind gusts is moving towards Hampton Roads. One or two storms may produce strong winds capable of damage. The areas of most concern includes the Peninsulas, eastern shore and south side. The timing is likely after sunset with the associated cold front near Interstate-95 by 7 p.m. and clear the area by midnight.

Meanwhile, partly sunny, warm and gusty. Calm conditions overnight with clear skies and lows in the 40s. Sunshine on Monday with highs near 60, which is the beginning of several cool and sunny days. In fact, temperatures will steadily fall each day between Monday and Wednesday.

A second cold front Tuesday will re-enforce the temperature drop. Expect 30s by Wednesday morning with wind chills in the 20s... 40s for Wednesday afternoon, which is more like February's weather than November. Warming into the 60s by the weekend!

Tropical Update:

Iota is rapidly intensifying as a hurricane before it reaches Central America.

Iota is moving toward the west just offshore of Central America with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph. On the forecast track, Iota will move across the southwest Caribbean Sea Sunday, and it'll approach the coasts of Nicaragua and northeastern Honduras Monday evening. Rapid strengthening is expected during the next day or two, since Iota is forecast to become a major hurricane.
