Sunny, warm Wednesday

Rain and storms return Thursday

High pressure is building back into the Tri-State today which means mostly sunny skies again today.  Temperatures out the door this morning will be cooler in the mid to upper 30s.  But temperatures will improve quickly again today as we climb to 66°F with continued sunshine.

Our next rainmaker arrives during the day Thursday with a slight chance of showers prior to noon. This cold front will produce more widespread showers and thunderstorms during the evening commute. There is a "marginal risk" of a severe thunderstorm meaning about a 5% chance of severe weather.  We'd be looking at isolated damaging wind gusts and large hail if any severe weather materialized.

Temperatures ahead of the front will top out in the lower 70s on Thursday.  Right now, rainfall totals upwards of 1-2" can be expected. We are watching for any potential minor flooding issues. Rain will linger into Friday too, heavy at times again. Highs on Friday top out at 63°F.

The Easter holiday weekend is looking mostly sunny and dry. Saturday will likely start partly/mostly cloudy before the sunshine pops out. Easter Sunday will be chilly in the morning with temps in the mid 30s. Sunrise is 7:22 a.m. Highs in the low 50s on Saturday rise to near 60 degrees on Sunday.

OPENING DAY: Right now, skies will be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers.
