Saturday began with cold, winter-like temperatures along with pesky mist and abundant cloud coverage. The unfortunate thing about this is that’s how all of your Saturday will go. However, things will shape up nicely for Easter Sunday. As of now, temperatures are dropping through the low 40s and may dip into the upper 30s before the sun can warm us up; the little it will today. Cloudy skies remain in place, and rain will fall as the wave of moisture moves eastward.

The rain today will either be a light mist or light to moderate rain, depending on your location and timing. A shield of moisture will move eastward as the center of low-pressure swings northeast, so 70% of the viewing area is promised at least some rainfall. Southern counties may just be grazed or just cloudy. Everyone will deal with temperatures running 20+ degrees below normal thanks to a net northerly wind flow through the day. Saturday will be your indoor weather day.

Everything changes Easter Sunday! Winds will shift as the low departs and with that shift, will come, a nice boost in temperatures. In fact, we will rise 20+ degrees putting us in the upper 60s for your Easter Sunday which will go down as being a normal early spring day. The best part will be the lack of precipitation and more sunshine. Keep in mind, the ground will still be wet (or muddy) from Saturday’s rainfall, but I’m sure the kiddos won’t mind. Better weather will hang around for early next week.  ​
