- High pressure will enable sunshine through midweek.
- A new frontal system will bring very cold temps and more snow to the central states and another surge of summer like warmth for those East of Mississippi River Wed-Thu.
- Cold front with heavy rain and some thunderstorms will cross our area again on Fri.
- Much colder weather for next weekend and into the following week.
- Week two through April 26th should be fairly benign. No big storms, just some smaller, weaker systems passing through.
Temperatures: Again, this next week, should be similar to the one we just went through:
- Mon – Tue … warming into the 60s Mon and mid 70s Tues.
- Wed-Thu … warm with southwesterly breeze sending temps to near 80 or above with enough sunshine. A boundary will be close by, so clouds could be a limiting factor, esp. Thu.
- Fri … should become cloudy with highs around 70. Windy also.
- Sat-Sun … much cooler with gusty NW winds temps in the 50s.
- Week two through April 26th will be very different. The theme will be cool, with below normal temps for much of the week [There is potential for it to be even colder than I am thinking]
Precipitation: Again, this next week, should be similar to the one we just went through:
- 1. Will be dry most of the time Mon – Tue … however, it is possible for some light showers to be around as warmer air moves in, but it will be dry 90% of the time.
- 2. Wed … just like this past week, some showers/thunderstorms could develop and cross west to east across the area. This would occur later in the day.
- 3. Thu … dry, but some clouds could be around.
- 4. Heavy rain with thunderstorms on Fri as front crashes through.
- 5. Dry and windy Sat into Sun
- 6. Week two through April 26th will feature a different pattern than this coming week. It becomes less active, with lighter precipitation (no thunder) chances early in the week, and then some more toward the end of the week. Not a dry week, but nothing especially heavy.
