Tracking a cold look to start April

Good Monday, everyone. Easter weekend is in our rear-view mirror and it’s full steam ahead toward April. That’s usually the time of year when we are really locking into springtime, but Mother Nature has a different idea this go-round.

Let’s start with where we are Monday. Colder winds will be blowing under a mostly cloudy sky. Highs should be in the 50s, with a small chance of some sprinkles or a light shower.

The clouds begin to thin early Tuesday, with afternoon highs making a run toward 60 degrees. Winds will still be gusty as we await the arrival of our next storm system. This one rolls into town by Wednesday evening with showers and thunderstorms. The NAM shows the rains becoming widespread by Thursday morning:

NAMHeavy rains are a good bet, and some of the storms by Thursday could be on the strong side.

That system works through by Friday with a blast of colder air coming in behind it. Look at how far below normal we are by Friday:

GFS TempsThe really cold air comes in behind that for next weekend:

GFS Temps 2

Record lows are possible during that time, and that could lead to some problems for green thumbs.

Enjoy your Monday and take care.
