Today’s Forecast: September 3, 2019
*A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Accomack and Northampton counties in Virginia.*
Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with perhaps some patchy fog. Lows will drop into the upper 60s to near 70.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny, hot, and a sticky with temperatures climbing to near 90° and heat index values in the mid 90s. An isolated storm is possible late in the day.
We’ll begin to see cooler temperatures and mostly cloudy skies by Thursday as a cold front swings through and hurricane Dorian pushes north offshore. A few showers are possible with most of the rain arriving late. Highs will be in the upper 70s. Rain showers continue into Friday, with the heaviest being at the coast. Temperatures will be even cooler in the mid 70s. Coastal flooding and gusty winds will be the biggest concern. Winds could gust to 50 mph at the beaches and 30-40 mph inland. Rainfall totals could be between 1-3 inches at the coast and less than an inch inland.
Dorian quickly heads out to sea and the weather improves over the weekend. Plenty of sun is expected Saturday with lower humidity and highs in the low 80s. Sunday will be partly to mostly sunny and warm with highs in the low to mid 80s.
Monday will be partly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to near 80 and a chance for a few showers. Tuesday remains partly sunny with highs in the upper 70s.
Have a great night!
