Dry start for the first half of the weekend will lead to a wet Sunday. For the start of Spring break week will be wet leading temperatures falling to near or slightly below normal for the first half of next week.
Friday: A warmer day than today partly to mostly sunny, highs in the upper 40’s, lows in the low to mid 20’s.
Saturday: The day Saturday is looking quite dry under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Our expected storm system has been slower in recent forecasts so any rain to fall will likely happen after midnight into the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning. Saturday will be very warm! Highs in the lower 70’s, with a low Saturday morning around 40. The day Saturday will be quite breezy we could see wind gusts up to 35 mph, sustained winds will be from the south of up to 20 mph for much of the afternoon on Saturday.
Sunday: Here comes the rain, a cold front is expected to swing through Sunday morning producing a line of rain showers as it quickly moves through. When that system departs the majority of the afternoon should be dry and cloudy, but by evening another system is expected to approach the area giving us a slight chance of rain for the evening as a warm front pushes north. Wouldn’t surprise me if we hear a rumble of thunder on Sunday. Rainfall amounts shouldn’t be enough to cause flooding concerns on Sunday. The high will be in the mid to upper 60’s, the low only in the mid 50’s.
Monday: The morning will be very wet as the warm front continues to lift it’s way north and east. The rain in the morning could have some concern for flooding in poor drainage areas. Then lighter rain showers will follow for the rest of the day Monday. Highs will be in the mid 40’s, lows in the low to mid 30’s.
Tuesday: We will dry out, the day will be partly sunny, and cold air will rush in for the day Tuesday. It’s going to feel like that after the weekend’s weather. The day will have below average temperatures, the high will be around 40, the low in the upper 20’s.
