Rain returns this weekend and a look at beach weather


(WOWK) — A cold front is expected to stall in the area and air in the development of showers and storms on both days this weekend. Saturday starts fairly dry but by the late afternoon and evening, we anticipate plenty of showers and storms.

Sunday we see a repeat performance with late day showers and storms developing but perhaps fewer or even no showers on the northern side of the region.

The rainfall on the weekend could be stout. Current models show more than an inch in some areas.

The area is in a marginal risk for excessive rainfall which is another way of saying there could be some flooding issues but it’s the lowest category known as “marginal.” We will keep an eye on things for you.

Meanwhile the beaches might be the place to be for fantastic weather on Saturday. The models show a really great and sunny setup.

Sunday it appears there could be a few scattered showers and storms here or there along the coast. The wettest area looks to be from Virginia Beach down to about Cape Hatteras. From there all the way to Daytona there should not be many storms and not enough to worry about canceling plans to be on the water.

Here’s some interesting info on why you can see storms near the beach but quite often it’s really nice right at the beach in summer.

Our parent company, NEXSTAR, has stations all along the coast from Virginia Beach to the south. If you’d like to check out the local weather at those beach locations, please see the pages linked below.
