Blustery and colder tonight, a dry and brisk start to the weekend

Forecast

Warming up and staying dry for Easter Sunday...

EVENING: Windy. Temperatures Falling to the 50s. Winds: S 15-25 mph. Gusts to 45 mph.

TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Chilly, Windy. Lo 36. Winds: W 15-25 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

FRIDAY: Partly Cloudy, Windy & Cool. Hi 48. Winds: W 15-25 mph. Gusts to 40 mph.

Gusty showers and storms rolled through from 11 AM-1 PM and now the strong winds are coming through too. Tonight will be chilly and windy too with lows in the upper 30s.

Friday will be a windy and downright cold day as highs may not get out of the 40s. Winds will still gust near 40 mph which will add to the chill. A morning flurry is not out of the question over the mountains thanks to those strong winds coming off the Great Lakes. Things will begin to settle down by the weekend but with overnight lows in the low to mid 30s, there could even be a frost/freeze early Saturday. For those of you that have started the growing season that will be something to watch out for, however, the winds may prevent frost from being a major concern.

Weather conditions will be clear and calm for Sunday morning. Clouds increase Sunday afternoon and warm air returns for the afternoon. Temperatures climb near 70 late Sunday!

Plan for a soaking rain and windy conditions for Monday. Rainfall amounts could near one inch. A stretch of cooler air follows for most of next week.
