First Alert Saturday Evening Outlook

Sunny (and warmer) Easter Sunday!

The deep upper low that gave us cold, wet and windy weather yesterday was still just off to our east today…..so even though we finally cleared out we were still picking up some pretty gusty north winds into the afternoon hours. However…as the low continues to spin off to the northeast tonight our winds will decrease…and it will turn into a clear, cool but quiet night. With fairly low dew points and clear skies, tonight will be quite chilly…and lows will likely be a bit lower than advertised by forecast models. Folks at outdoor sunrise services will have clear skies and light winds…but official air temps in the upper 30s to low 40s. Otherwise a building upper ridge will make for a mainly sunny and warmer day tomorrow with afternoon highs in the upper 70s.

The week looks to get off to a warm and dry start…with southerly breezes and slowly rising humidity levels. It looks like we’re going to have a semi-unsettled pattern from about Tuesday evening through Thursday, as a weak upper trough and weak cold front settle into the region. However….models are less than impressive with any threat of strong storms or heavy rain…so hopefully this will not be a major event (for a change.) None the less a few showers or storms look possible mid-week before we dry out again by the end of the week.
