Quiet weather and cool temperatures for Friday

PLEASANT END TO THE WEEK

Expect mostly clear skies tonight after a few clouds dissipate through the evening. Temperatures fall from 60s to 50s then drop to the lower 40s by morning. Winds are light to calm Friday under plenty of sunshine. A few clouds may mix in and out at times. Readings are comfortable in the middle 60s. The flow shifts to the southwest and picks up heading into the weekend. This brings in milder air along with some clouds too.

EASTER WEEKEND OUTLOOK

Morning lows are milder in the upper 40s. Expect mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers later in the day, as a warm front lifts through the area. There are plenty of dry hours through the day for outdoor activities.  We could see a wide range of temperatures depending on how far east the front travels.  It is possible our western counties jump into the lower and middle 70s, while our eastern counties remain stuck in the 60s.  Once it pushes north, temperatures jump significantly into Sunday. Readings are headed to the lower 80s for the Easter holiday. Expect partly sunny skies. A late day shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out as a cold front slowly approaches. The front doesn’t slide through until very early Monday morning.

NEXT WEEK

It’s not as warm heading back to work, but temperatures remain above average, as they climb to the lower 70s Monday.  Cold front exits the area early,  allowing for the sunshine to increase, after morning clouds and spotty showers. Tuesday is a bit cooler with temperatures falling to the 40s. Highs recover to the middle and upper 60s. Our next rain threat arrives Wednesday, and they may linger into Thursday.  Temperatures are in the 60s both days.
