Posted at 12:08 AM, Jun 02, 2020

Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Temperatures will dip into the 50s once again overnight under mostly clear skies.

We'll start to feel the temperatures and humidity go up on Tuesday. Highs will warm to the low 80s. Clouds will be on the increase as the day progresses.

Another rise in temperatures Wednesday. Some of the area could potentially see their first 90° of the season. Norfolk usually sees their first 90 degree day by May 16th, so we're running a little behind schedule.

The hot and humid weather will carry into Thursday with highs near 90 and the chance for scattered showers and storms. Another chance for wet weather on Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid and upper 80s.

Milder temperatures move in for Sunday and Monday. Expect highs in the mid 70s both days. We do have a slight chance of showers on Sunday, but looks like Monday will feature dry conditions and wall to wall sunshine.

June 1st marks the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. The season runs through November 30th with a peak on September 10th. So far, we've had two named storms. Both Tropical Storm Arthur and Bertha formed during the month of May. Below is a graphic showing the 2020 Storm Names.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is predicting an ABOVE NORMAL hurricane season with 13-19 named storms. 6-10 of the storms reaching hurricane strength and 3-6 of those becoming major hurricanes. A major hurricane is a category 3 or higher.

Below is a chart showing the sustained winds for a Tropical Depression, Tropical Storm, Hurricane and a Major Hurricane.

Tropical Depression Three is moving toward the west near 7 mph. The depression is forecast to turn west-southwestward or southward at a even slower forward speed on Tuesday, and meander over the southern Bay of Campeche through late Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of the cyclone is forecast to be near the coast of the southern Bay of Campeche Tuesday night through Thursday. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is expected during the next couple of days and the depression is forecast to become a tropical storm tonight or Tuesday.
