Staying quiet overnight; few showers early Saturday
Dry conditions are in store for Easter Sunday
- Mild lows tonight
- Morning showers on Saturday
- Easter Sunday dry, but slightly cooler
Temperatures tonight will be considered mild with lows in the upper 40s and 50s. Clouds will increase tonight in front of our next disturbance that may bring a few light showers early Saturday morning.
On Saturday some morning rain showers are possible, but most will be drying out before lunchtime. Can’t completely rule out the chance for sprinkles of rain in the afternoon, but most will remain dry.
Behind the front winds pick up in speed. Expect wind gusts to reach around 25 MPH. Highs tomorrow will be about the same as today in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Expect cooler air to close out our Easter weekend. Starting off Easter Sunday chilly in the 30s and 40s with a northwesterly breeze. Highs will be scattered in the 60s.
Sunrise is at 6:42 AM Sunday. Good news! For any of our Easter services/family gatherings, the day will be dry with mostly sunny skies.
RAINY, COLD & WINTRY START TO THE WEEK
We are dry for the day on Easter, but a few showers are possible to start to work in by early Monday morning. Expect widespread showers to form on Monday thanks to a low pressure system approaching the region. We hold onto the chance for rain to last throughout much of the day.
Cold high pressure up to the north puts us under a wedge allowing us to see cooler than normal temperatures on Monday. Temperatures will struggle to increase throughout the day on Monday thanks to widespread rain and our pesky wedge setup. Highs will mainly be in the 40s with a few low 50s possible.
We will start to warm things up by the middle of the next work week. We close out next week with the 70s making a return.
