Noticeably Warmer This Weekend

Seasonal temperatures on this Good Friday will get even warmer for the rest of the holiday weekend.

We’re starting off in the 30s this morning but that will be short lived as April sun combined with the drier air to work should be enough to pop those temperatures around the 60 degree mark.

Warmer winds will be more noticeable Saturday as a system pulling into the Northern Plains provide a return flow out of the southwest sending temperatures around 70 degrees.  It could climb a few degrees warmer if the system slows down even more thus allowing for the sun to take advantage of the drier air in place.

By Easter Sunday the front associated with this system moves across the area, but not until that night as I was hinting on throughout the week.  This should lead to another very mild but windy day with highs likely in the low to mid 70s for many spots.  Conditions perfect for Easter egg hunting.  It won’t be until after your Easter dinner when the chance for showers increase and becomes more scattered across the area.

No cool down to follow as 60s and 70s will be common all of next week with the next round of showers and thunderstorms expected by next Wednesday.
