Chance of Rain Thursday, Pleasant for Good Friday
5:00 p.m. Wed 16 April 2014
Wednesday’s gusty winds will ease off overnight as the pressure gradient begins to relax. Skies will be mostly clear much of the night with clouds increasing by sunrise.
The clouds increase in response to a mid-level wave approaching during the day; there’s not a lot of moisture for this system to work with but some scattered showers are expected as it passes Thursday/Thursday night.
The wave should be to our east for the beginning of Easter weekend on Good Friday. A short-wave ridge aloft should help to make for a very pleasant day with highs in the low 70s and partly to mostly sunny skies.
Clouds increase again late Saturday as a new wave (also known as a trough) heads our way for Sunday/Monday. Showers and scattered thunderstorms can be expected with this feature on Easter Sunday and into Monday followed by drier weather returning by Tuesday.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear Evening, Clouds Late…..Lows 40 east to 47 west
Thursday: 30% Rain, Cool…..Highs 64 to 67
Friday: Partly Cloudy…..50/71
Saturday: 20% Rain or Storms…..54/76
Sunday: 40% Rain or Storms…..60/76
Monday: 20% Rain…..62/78
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny…..58/81
Wednesday: Partly Cloudy, Windy …..62/85
May You Have A Terrific Thursday!
