Good morning. The rain that is currently moving through the area will be cleared out by mid morning giving way to clear skies tonight. This rain is the result of a cold front moving through the area, so lows tonight do hit freezing in some spots.
We then move towards an excellent stretch of weather Wednesday through Sunday. High pressure moves into the area and looks to stay in control through the weekend..
Temperatures will be seasonable for the rest of the work week. Expect highs to be in the mid 50's to lower 60's through Friday. As we get into the weekend things might even take a better turn as some ridging builds over the area...
I expect most areas to see temps in the mid 60's Saturday and a very good shot at 70's on Sunday! This pattern then looks to continue into next week.
It might have took a little longer than normal but the floodgates of spring have now opened up. Winter was a strange beast this year. For the most part it did not even exist except for the historical snowstorm we had back in Jan. It then tried to make a comeback over this past week but it was a month too late. As impressive as things got for April, if this was February we would have been in the freezer.
A few things to expect over the next week or two. For one, I will review my winter forecast. Not my best year but there were some silver linings. I will also give you guys an idea of what I expect for summer this year. It is too early to speculate on Winter of 2017 but there are certain factors we are going to have to watch evolve over next 6 months. I will mention those as well.
