April is getting off to a great start weather-wise with plenty of sunshine and only slightly below average temperatures. High pressure is responsible for the clear skies and that will continue tonight. As high pressure moves eastward tomorrow, the winds will swing to the south and pull in noticeably warmer air. We expect sunny skies tomorrow with highs around 70 degrees.
On Friday, a warm front will approach the area closely followed by a trailing cold front. So, Friday will be warm…in the 70s…but it will be wet with rain becoming likely. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible later Friday. By Saturday morning, the cold front will have crossed our region. And with that passage, the rain will end and skies will clear throughout the day. Temperature will be much cooler. Even with afternoon sunshine, high temperatures will hold in the 50s.
On Easter Sunday, we are forecasting mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 60s. If you have plans early Sunday morning, expect clear skies and temperatures around 40 degrees.

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows an edge-on view of the spiral galaxy NGC 5023. Due to its orientation we cannot appreciate its spiral arms, but we can admire the elegant profile of its disc. The galaxy lies over 30 million light-years away from us. NGC 5023 is part of the M51 group of galaxies.
