Warm & windy weekend, a chance of showers on Easter Sunday

Highs in the 70s all weekend long

A fantastic finish to the week, but it will be even nicer over the holiday weekend. Expect highs to climb into the upper 70s for Saturday afternoon with a fair amount of sunshine. It will also be windy Saturday, with gusts near 30mph possible.

On Easter Sunday, our next system will approach. The latest data is indicating the true "rain" and storms will hold off until Sunday night into Monday morning. However, it is still possible we see a few spotty sprinkles and showers in the afternoon Sunday. I do not think it will be a washout, but the earlier in the day you plan your outdoor activities, the better.

Highs will remain in the 70s for the next week. We will be monitoring another system for the middle part of the week. It has the potential to bring strong showers and storms to the area.
