GOOD WEDNESDAY MORNING!
Our dry stretch continues today…we have not had rain since the 11th of the month. Thankfully the start of April was wet so we are in no danger of things getting TOO dry.
High pressure is off to our east today and this will provide plenty of sunshine and a nice warm up after a chilly start.
The atmosphere will moisten up on Thursday and while the day is certainly no washout, there will be some showers around at times. The highest risk of wet weather looks to be in the afternoon and evening.
Showers will linger into part of Friday. There may be a drying trend in the afternoon.
We also have an outside chance for thunder Thursday afternoon and again on Friday.
Rain totals should shake out to around 1/2 inch.
PLEASANT APRIL WEEKEND
The weekend is looking good! Sunday will be the warmer half of the weekend and both days will feature some sunshine. Not as warm as this past weekend but still quite nice.
EARLY NEXT WEEK
That front that you see on Sunday’s map. It will make for forecasting headaches across the region early next week. There will be a HUGE temperature difference across the boundary, perhaps on the order of 35-40 degrees. How far south will the front wobble Monday? I suspect it will not come this far south…but if it manages to, temperatures could be in the 40s instead of the upper 60s!
Either way, some showers are likely Monday and Tuesday.
2 DEGREE GUARANTEE
Bummer….cool northeast wind kept the temperature from rising as high as we thought Tuesday. 3 degrees off.
