A warming trend this week

Another work week begins with fairly calm weather as high pressure settles in the southeastern United States.

Temperatures across the region on Monday will be between 60 and 70 degrees across the region. We will see a southeast wind. Now, that can make temperatures a bit tricky along the coast. Water temperatures in the 50s across the Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay will keep temperatures somewhat lower along the coastline. So the northern area and eastern areas of Virginia Beach, parts of Norfolk, and much of the Eastern and Lower Peninsula will be cooler. Same deal for the east coast and parts of the OBX.

A nice warming trend as we head into Tuesday, with highs approaching 80 across much of the region.

With high pressure under control, the chances of rain will be limited this week. Isolated showers are possible over the entire peninsula and areas north of the peninsula Tuesday afternoon. Most areas will remain dry. Our next chance for bigger rain comes as we head into the end of the week.

On Thursday, a cold front will approach from the west. Isolated to scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms will occur late afternoon/evening and into early night.

I hope you are having a good week!
