Forecast

Staying dry this weekend...

SATURDAY: AM Sun, PM Clouds. Hi 54.

EASTER SUNDAY: Lingering AM Clouds. Then Mostly Sunny, Milder. Hi 65.

Today was a blast back into late February, early March weather! Despite a ton of sun, temperatures were in the 30s to low 40s for much of the day. The winds added more chill throughout the day. Tonight, it will feel like the 20s outside due to the colder air and wind. Skies will be clear overnight leading to more cooling. Low temperatures drop to the upper 20s, but that is not a record. The record low for tomorrow morning is 24° set in 1896. Winds do gradually die down heading into Saturday morning.

Tomorrow will be more seasonable with highs in the mid 50s. The day will start with sunshine and feature some clouds for the second half. Easter Sunday continues to look sunny (other than some lingering clouds early in the morning) with highs in the 60s. Not a bad holiday weekend on tap!

Next week features seasonably mild conditions with high temperatures in the 60s. There are a few chances for showers Tuesday and Wednesday, however any rain will be light with some weak disturbances moving through. The forecast for the end of the week does get a little more tricky as there is potential for areas of low pressure to get cut-off from the main jet stream flow and stall. This may impact how much sunshine we see toward the end of next week, but it could also introduce a few more opportunities for showers.
