Good Friday, folks. Rain is beginning to push out of the region, with cooler air taking control through the final weekend of April. As we head into the first week of May, things turn much warmer with some storms lurking.
Let’s start with today. Morning rain will fade as the day wears on and partly sunny skies return. There is still a slight chance for a late day shower or storm in the east:
Temps will be in the 60s for afternoon highs.

Make it a good one and take care.
