Warmer Winds On Your Wednesday

The chilly spring air of late takes a back seat for today as we try to push temperatures close to more seasonal spring conditions.

An upper Plains low will slowly steer eastward sending a breezy south wind ahead of it.  This should warm numbers around the 60 degree mark by later this afternoon under mostly to partly sunny skies.  These warmer winds will have gusts close to 40 mph.

As the system’s core pulls into the Great Lakes, more clouds will roll in tonight, though a quick light shower or sprinkle should stay well up to our north.  Surface winds will return out of the northwest Thursday, which will trim daytime highs in the low to mid 50s.

Temperatures will be similar Friday as another system rolls in from the Central Plains bringing a much better chance of showers early that morning.

Fortunately, temperatures quickly bounce back up for the rest of the holiday weekend with readings around the lower 60s both Saturday and Easter Sunday.  A few showers still look possible Easter Sunday but not until we head into the evening hours.  I’ll keep you updated.
