***Evening Update by Kurt Aaron***
I’m happy to report the weather looks warm over the next 48 hours. High temperatures will reach the 60s on Thursday and Friday. A cold front will approach Thursday night and bring some rain showers tomorrow night and Friday. Colder air behind the front will arrive Saturday morning along with some snow showers and flurries. The temperature will remain in the 40s. Easter Sunday will feature a mix of sun and clouds along with afternoon temperatures in the 50s. Some more rain showers are likely Sunday night.
The cold air now in town will be long gone by tomorrow afternoon. Strong southerly winds will deliver a much warmer day tomorrow with winds gusting to 30mph in the afternoon. Also tomorrow another cold front will be approaching. Rain showers converging along the front will arrive tomorrow evening and last into Friday morning. Looks to me like the front will stall nearby late Friday and a wave of low pressure riding along the front will extend the chance of rain into Friday night.
An abrupt shift in the wind before daybreak Saturday will quickly send temperatures downward perhaps fast enough to change the rain to snow. For now I expect little or no accumulation but for sure Saturday will be windy and cold with morning snow showers. The wind Saturday morning will be gusting to 35mph.
Another front sagging down form the north on Easter Sunday could turn skies cloudy with rain in the afternoon.
