5-day Forecast, 4/6-4/10/2023: A Warmup in Bloom

Hello, Cardinal Country! After a wild ride through some very active weather from the last two systems (I’m sure many of us still have last Friday on our minds, especially), we say hello to a new friend – a very expansive ridge of high pressure! We are still in the wake of yesterday’s system and still have some northwesterlies, so expect things to feel initially chilly today. However, as the skies clear and the winds slacken off, we should not have too bad a day with lower to mid-50s expected for today under thinning high clouds (we’re just getting some clearing at the hour of this writing). As our ridge of high pressure aloft amplifies and shifts east, we start to see winds switch to out of the E, then around the compass to out of the south through the balance of this 5-day forecast period, and temperatures rebound above average – first to the 60s for Easter Weekend (I’d hop for that, but there’s more), then some groovy 70s to put some pep into our steps as we begin our week (Maybe eliminating cases of The Mondays, but perhaps increasing cases of Spring Fever?). We do have a bit of a shortwave trough that looks to sail to our NE, and that’s where some clouds could filter in Sunday night into Monday, but it does not seem like too big a deal at this point. We are almost to the weekend, folks, so enjoy & get ready for some wonderful weather ahead! Fly safe, Cardinals, and a belated Happy One Ball State Day to those who celebrated and donated to Ball State University and its various programs such as the Meteorology and Climatology as well 🙂
