A gorgeous Easter Sunday is on the way! It will be very nice and pleasant outside with high temperatures climbing to the mid 70′s with mainly sunny skies. Temperatures will continue to trend warmer into the work week with highs in the upper 70′s and lower 80′s each afternoon.

Quiet and dry conditions are expected over the next few days. We’ll start to see rain chances increase by the middle to latter portion of the work week. A slow moving cold front will move in Wednesday and continue moving southeastward into Thursday. This will likely bring us our next bets chance for showers and storms. The SPC already has a level 2/5 for severe storms to the north of the area. We could possibly see this risk extended to the south for Thursday. This is still a good ways out. We will have a better idea and more specifics closer to time.
