Friday, April 19 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Severe storms have long cleared our area and we are now under mostly cloudy skies with a few light showers around in spots. Temperatures will struggle to even make it back to 60 this afternoon for many of us as we look to stay under mostly cloudy skies. This is due to a deep trough moving through, keeping this cool, cloudy, and rainy. Scattered showers will be with us mainly in the afternoon. It’ll be breezy today with northwesterly winds at 15-25 mph.

Showers will be possible for the first half of the evening; otherwise we’ll see those clouds gradually clearing out as temperatures drop into the mid-40s by Saturday morning. We will see plenty of sunshine as we head in Easter weekend, with highs around 70 on Saturday and then around 80 by Easter Sunday.

We’ll stay dry through Tuesday as highs by then climb into the mid-80s. We should still get into the mid-80s by Wednesday, but clouds will be on the increase out ahead of a weak disturbance set to move through by Thursday. I’ll reintroduce stray shower chances into the forecast for Wednesday, with scattered showers possible by Thursday. Severe weather looks unlikely with this system.
