Warm Easter Weekend…

Highlights:

  • Warm Easter weekend
  • Scattered storms, but more dry time than wet
  • Bigger storm system looms late next week

Summer-Feel This Weekend…The big weather story for the Easter weekend will be the unseasonably warm temperatures, including a “touch” of humidity for the first time this spring.  That warmth and humidity will aid in storm development, at times, this weekend, but the balance of the holiday weekend will be rain-free.

We think best storm coverage comes this evening (primarily after the evening rush) and again on Easter Sunday.  While an isolated storm is possible Saturday, most of the day should be dry.

A cold front will sweep through the state Easter evening and help set-up a dry, slightly cooler regime to open the new work week.  Dry conditions remain Tuesday before scattered storms return to the forecast Wednesday.  A bigger, more significant storm system looms by the end of next week and could result in heavy rainfall totals.  We’ll keep an eye on things.

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: 0.00″
  • Rainfall: 0.50′ – 1.00″
