A brief warm-up ahead

Good Wednesday, everybody. Temperatures will slowly begin to climb over the next few days, and we might even get close to normal. That’s the good news. The bad news is, another big blast of cold air is on the way for the first week of April.

Temps today will rise into the upper 30s and lower 40s, with a couple of snow flurries. Some sunshine will make an appearance. Partly sunny skies are likely for Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the middle 40s for Thursday and closer to 50 degrees by Friday. I can’t rule out some sprinkles during this time.

Saturday looks to be the best day for the next week and change. Highs should surge into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees as winds pick up. That milder surge of air is ahead of a cold front that moves our way in time for Easter Sunday.

Here’s how the GFS sees it playing out:


Showers and scattered thunderstorms will be possible on Easter, and some of those showers might hang around until early Monday. Colder air will then work in from the northwest, and another system might bring rain or snow back to our part of the world by Monday evening and into Tuesday.

That is all part of another shot of very cold weather. Look at the temperature departures from the GFS for next week:

GFS 3That’s how April comes in and is a continuation of the current pattern.

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
