Friday, April 5 Forecast Discussion

Skies are continuing to clear this afternoon as high pressure builds in from the west. Skies will go completely clear overnight, allowing for a very chilly night. Temperatures will drop very quickly after sunset with some locations bottoming out in the upper 30s. We will not have to worry about frost tonight in any location.

Tomorrow returns to full sunshine as high pressure moves over top. Temperatures will warm to seasonal readings and we will make a run towards 80 by Monday. We should get there Tuesday and Wednesday before our next system arrives.

Models have been fairly consistent in showing a threat for severe weather for Wednesday into Thursday, which is remarkable for being a week out. A strong upper level low and associated surface low pressure will move through the region Wednesday and Thursday bringing showers and storms. It is still too early to say what mode any type of severe weather to expect, but this one bears watching as we enter the peak of our primary severe weather season.

One the front passes, temperatures will drop to the low 70s for Thursday afternoon before we start warming back towards 80 for next weekend.
