Overall our Friday will be a lot quieter than Wednesday and Thursday! A mix of clouds and sun can be expected for the rest of the day. Winds will be light and highs remain below average, but a lot closer than yesterday! Highs this afternoon will top out around 50.
The holiday weekend looks a lot warmer. Highs will return to above average levels in the 60s both days, but a few Easter plans may be impacted due to rain. It will not be a washout by any means. But, there is a chance for some rain (and possibly thunder) especially late Saturday and then again on Sunday. Just a good plan to pack along the umbrella just in case as you head off to church or an Easter egg hunt. You'll also need to tie those Easter bonnets extra tight Saturday as winds increase from the south gusting up to 30 miles per hour! That south wind is the reason we'll see the warmer temperatures, but it might also cause some headaches for egg hunters. Easter Sunday will be even warmer, but there is still a chance for rain thanks to a front in the area. Timing for the rain looks mainly afternoon, so if you plan on attending Easter services in the morning, it looks dry for now!
A 70° day looks possible for Monday but it will not last. A large spring storm (with spring-like precipitation) will be coming together early next week across the Plains and looks to impact us by midweek. The good news is that we'll be dealing with rain and thunder as opposed to snow. Temperatures will also begin to cool slightly through the later days of the work week. A little closer to average, so still well above freezing.
Hope the Easter bunny brings you lots of sweet treats!
