A cloudy, cool and in some places wet start to Tuesday. Temperatures are on the cooler side, in the low to mid 30s but once the winds are factored in, it feels even cooler! Wind chill values this morning are in the 20s...a little chilly for late April! It is certainly a jacket kind of day! And, we are still seeing some light rain and snow, but it will not amounting to more than a dusting, and anything that does stick will mainly be in our northern counties.
Overall, it will be another dreary day. And, one that is not very favorable for outside activities due to the clouds, light rain (and at times light snow) combined with temperatures only reaching into the low and mid 40s and a very blustery wind. West northwest winds will be blowing at 15-25 miles per hour making for a windy and crisp day feeling a lot more like March! Usually, by this time in spring our highs are in the 60s, but we are going to see below average temperatures lasting right into the final week of the month!
Tonight will be another chilly one. Temperatures dip into the upper 20s (about ten degrees below average) under a mainly cloudy sky. We could see a few additional light snow or rain showers, but accumulation will be minimal. Factor in the gusty winds and it will again be feeling like the upper 10s to low 20s. Brrr!
The good news is that the weather will be improving in the coming days. It will still be cool, but it will not be as wet and dreary. Of course, we could still use additional rain, but it is just not fun at all to have to deal with the light rain and wind really adding a chill to the air. Overall, the rest of the week will be much drier and a bit milder, but still below average for this time of year by about ten degrees. The system bringing us the wet weather today will be exiting tomorrow, slowly taking the clouds with it. But, it will be another very windy day with temperatures again in the 40s with west northwest winds gusting to 30 miles per hour. By Thursday and Friday, the coolest of the weather will be behind us, but it will take some time to get those temperatures back up closer to average. The end of the work week will feature some sunshine, with readings climbing into the lower 50s.
The weekend looks dry at this point, while some sunshine will continue. Highs will climb a bit more, into the mid and upper 50s, which is still below normal but at least a step in the right direction! There will be a few weather systems to watch in the coming days, but for now they look to pass by to our south. Beyond this, temperatures going into the final week of April look to remain near or just below average.
