April weather returns for this week

After a long stretch of cold, March-like weather, we’re finally beginning to see signs of April weather in the region as we reach the mid point of the month. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine today, especially for the morning before thin clouds drift in for the afternoon ahead of a weak storm system approaching from the west. Gusty southeast winds will occasionally reach 25 miles per hour, helping the warming cause as our high temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s. It will be the first time in the 50s since last Tuesday when we enjoyed temperatures in the 60s.

A few light rain showers will move in after sunset this evening with rain chances hanging around overnight and low temperatures will be close to 40 degrees.

After some early morning rain showers Tuesday, skies will clear quickly for the midday and afternoon with temperatures warming quickly into the lower 60s by late afternoon and just a light northeast breeze.

A large storm system will move into the region for the middle of the week, making for a gray, breezy, and unsettled stretch of weather in the area. We’ll have showers and thunderstorms through much of our Wednesday with some downpours of rain at times and even a couple of strong storms in the area that may produce some hail. High temperatures will be in the 50s with gusty east winds.

Lighter rain showers are expected through Thursday with raw north winds on the backside of the storm system and high temperatures will be in the upper 40s.

Friday looks pretty pleasant with increasing sunshine behind the midweek storm system and high temperatures will be in the mid 50s while the rest of Easter weekend looks even warmer as high temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 60s. There will be a small chance of rain Easter Sunday, but at this point, those look to hold off until late in the afternoon and evening.
