NOAA Predictions for Virginia's Spring Weather

Updated: Mar 28

With tips on protecting your home from damage with warmer and heavier Spring rains forecast.


NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) has released its spring outlook and is predicting above-average temperatures and precipitation and elevated flood risk for much of Virginia through June. And in case you were wondering, The Farmer's Almanac agrees.


Here's what Virginians can expect this Spring:

With warmer temperatures, more precipitation, and elevated flood risk forecast, here are some tips on how you can help prevent water damage and mold/mildew growth in your home:


  1. Check your roof system, all the layers, not just the shingles. Shingles are the exterior layer, and shingles alone will not keep the water out. You can read our post about Fortified Roofs here.

  2. Check the caulking around your windows and make sure weep holes are cleared of debris.

  3. Check your exterior walls, for cracks, peeling paint, and gaps.

  4. Paint waterproof sealant on crawl space and basement walls.

  5. Install water detection devices around basement floors.

  6. Use a dehumidifier in unair-conditioned spaces.

  7. Insulate your attic and crawl space. This helps keep these spaces cooler, reducing the risk of mildew and mold formation.

  8. Install storm windows properly.

  9. If you have basement or attic windows, consider installing honeycomb shades, which provide better insulation.
