Discussion: After an early week chill, temperatures have warmed back to what is more typical for this time of year. We topped out in the upper 60s yesterday and it appears we should be in the 70s for the next several days.
Overall we are in a fairly quite spell. We have a very weak front in the region today which will for the most part go unnoticed. This surface feature will combine with a low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico to bring in a few clouds today. Otherwise we’ll see sunny skies until Monday when the next system approaches.
Lows the next couple nights will be cool in the mid to upper 40s which is actually right around average for this time of year.
The string of tranquil weather days are thanks to an area of high pressure which will dominate our weather conditions through Monday. This should make for an excellent Easter weekend with highs in the 70s under sunny skies. This should make for some great egg hunts.
The only other weather story worth mentioning will be an approaching system by Monday. We’ll see a broad area of low pressure in association with an upper level disturbance which should kick off a few showers/maybe a thunderstorm Monday afternoon into Monday night. The system is still too far out to mention rain totals, but it doesn’t look to be a wash out of any sort.
Come Tuesday, that disturbance will push east and early indications show that much of next week again will be nice with temperatures in the 70s with sunny skies.
Today: Partly sunny with a high near 70. Generally light winds.
Tonight: Clear and cool with a low near 47. Winds will be light to calm.
Saturday: Sunny with a high around 75. Easterly winds from 5-12 mph.
Saturday Night: Again, clear and cool yet again with a low around 47. Winds will be light to calm.
Easter Sunday: Sunny skies and warm with a high around 78. Light southerly winds generally less than 10 mph.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy skies with a low near 57. South to southwest winds generally less than 10 mph.
Monday: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers/thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon. High in the mid 70s.
