Happy Easter to all! Today will be part two of a beautiful weather weekend. The sunshine will persist throughout the day and the temperature will top out around 81 degrees this afternoon. Get outside and play some golf, head to a park, or fire up the grill, but don’t forget that sunscreen! Some high clouds may try and move in from the west later this afternoon. Regardless, the sun will remain the dominant object in the sky.
A few showers will move into the area late Monday and into Tuesday. The high temperature tomorrow is dependent on how fast the clouds begin streaming in. Temperatures will likely approach the upper 70s to low 80s again tomorrow. It won’t be an all day rain event, but some thunderstorms are a definite possibility. Another round of showers looks to move in by Friday. No severe weather is expected with any of these rounds of storms. However, the quiet severe weather pattern has started to amp up a bit in the Midwest. We will have to watch and see if that signals a more active pattern for our area over the coming weeks.
Here is the 5 day precipitation outlook:
