Good Friday to one and all. Spring is slowly taking over from winter, but it’s coming with a soggy price. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will roll across the state through Saturday. This doesn’t mean it’s a total washout, but you will want to keep the umbrella handy.
Showers and a few rumbles of thunder will be with us this morning. Most of that will scoot to our east by this afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds taking over. Here’s regional radar to help you out:
Winds will be rather gusty with temps hitting the middle 60s before the day is out.
Another round of rain rolls in tonight into early Saturday. This will be a colder rain with readings mainly in the 40s. Colder air filters in by Saturday evening and I can’t rule out a period of light snow.
Temps by Sunday will rebound to around 60 as sunny skies return. This will lead us into a very warm early part of next week. Readings by Monday will warm toward 70 degrees on a gusty southwesterly wind. Tuesday looks good, but the middle and end of the week is taking on a stormy look.
Waves of thunderstorms will track our way by late Wednesday into Thursday:
Some of those storms could be on the strong side and that’s something for us to keep a close eye on.
Some pretty good rains are likely over the next week and change. Take a look at the rainfall forecast from the GFS:
