We will spend  another day wedged between low pressure in the North Atlantic and High Pressure west of the Appalachians.The morning sunshine will give way to increasing cloudiness as gusty northwesterly winds develop. And you know from experience what will happen next. The instability will generate patches of flurries or sprinkles depending on local temperatures a couple thousand feet above the ground. Later this evening, skies will clear and temperatures will fall from the lower 50s into the 30s.This pattern will begin to break down tomorrow. Skies will feature more sunshine than clouds and the winds will not be as brisk.

On Saturday, high pressure will be building overhead. This will provide mostly sunny skies and temperatures that will climb into the upper 50s. On Easter Sunday, as the high pressure moves out, moisture will rapidly increase ahead of the next cold front. This will lead to increasing cloudiness early Sunday and a chance of showers by the afternoon.

Some good news for the Nats Home Opener on Monday. Right now, it looks like skies will be partly sunny with temperatures in the 60s by the 7th inning stretch.
