Sunshine At Times; Still Chilly

Its a cold morning out there with the mercury in the 20s for many hometowns.  Highs pressure ridge will keep skies bright at times, which should be enough to put a small dent into the chilly air.  With that, afternoon highs will reach the lower 40s.  Thats a good 15 degree below the norm for this time of year.

We’ll see temperatures get much closer to normal by tomorrow as a surface low across the Upper Plains returns the winds out of the south ahead of it.  On Wednesday, afternoon highs will climb around the mid to upper 50s.

Keeping it dry during this period until another wave of low pressure originating out of the western Plains gets caught in the flow and drags our next round of showers.  The earliest should arrive late Thursday night into Friday.  Rain gauges could easily pick up a good quarter to a half an inch of rainfall.  This could lead to cooler 50s on Friday before getting another shoved near seasonal both Saturday and Easter Sunday.  Still expect a passing shower later in the day on Easter.  Hope we can delay that even more.
