Forecast Discussion

Good Friday morning to everyone! Well, it looks like we’ve got some pretty nice weather in store for the region today and tomorrow. Southerly winds will bring in much warmer air, resulting in higher temperatures – mid to upper 80’s! Due to all this heating, there may be a chance for a stray shower or two, but the models suggest that we’ll stay mainly dry today and tomorrow.

Our next big “rain-maker” looks to move through on Easter Sunday in the form of a cold front. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms during the early morning hours on Sunday, but more widespread activity during the early afternoon and evening hours.

Honestly, that’s pretty much it! Today and tomorrow look nice, but warm with clouds beginning to roll in. Easter Sunday looks to be rainy and thunderstormy ( I may or may not have made up that word).
