Cold Start… Warmer Finish

Posted By · April 16, 2014 at 4:27 am

After a cold start in the 20s, temps will warm into the 50s this afternoon with mostly sunny skies.  Our normal high this time of year is in the low 60s.

Tonight temps fall into the mid 30s, and it won’t be as cold as the 20s we’re waking up to this morning.  You’ll still need a heavier coat as you head out the door.

The good news, is that by tomorrow afternoon we’re back into the 60s for highs!

Rain chances return Friday, but mild highs in the 60s stick around for the weekend and into early next week.

Cold April Day Ahead

Posted By · April 15, 2014 at 4:09 am

I know we’re ready for the snow to get out of here, but this light accumulation was the first measurable April snow since 2001!  A forecast high of 40 degrees would tie the record low high temp from 1928.

Winds will gust up to 25mph today out of the northwest, so our high of 40 will feel cooler.

Temps this morning are running 30+ degrees colder than yesterday morning.

A warm up begins as early as tomorrow with highs in the 50s, and the 60s coming by Thursday.

Rain chances move in Friday, and become isolated by the weekend.

More Rain Today, but Starting to Dry Out

Posted By · April 8, 2014 at 4:16 am

Highs will reach the mid 50s today with the chance for a spotty shower or thunderstorm.  We are not expecting rain to be as widespread or as heavy as it was yesterday.  Lowland flooding may be continuing thanks to the saturated ground.

Tonight the clouds break and temps fall into the upper 30s.

Wednesday begins our warm up with highs in the low 60s, and by Thursday we could hit 70!

We do have rain chances late Thursday night, and more rounds of rain possible Sunday and Monday.
