Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast

Suddenly it is summer. Or at least it feels that way. And we have one more day of the unseasonably hot weather on the way.

In fact, we could break heat records on Saturday. We are forecasting high around 96 in Norfolk. The previous record is 94°.

The second half of the weekend will still be warm, just not as hot. With an approaching cold front we expect high temperatures to climb into the upper 80s and the lower 90s.

That cold front could spark a few showers or thunderstorms in the late afternoon and evening hours on Sunday. And that front will be our big weather maker as we head into next week.

It will hit the brakes and stick around for a few days. That means we will have a good chance for rain Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Temperatures will ease into the mid 70s on Monday and on Tuesday some of us may not get out of the 60s. But we get back closer to normal for high temperatures on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the mid-to-upper 70s and the lower 80s with a few storms scattered about to end the work week.
