BRRRRRR! The average high is now up to 70°, and considering the high temperature on Saturday topped out at 53°, it was a very cold late April day! The good news is the latest forecast data end the rain by Sunday morning which should allow some sunshine to return by Sunday afternoon warming us into the 60s! The wind picks up on Monday and the final effects of an upper-level system roll overhead through the region which could bring a small shower or a few sprinkles. Still a bit breezy on Tuesday but more sunshine should push temperatures closer to 70°. Next rain chances don't look that great with an associated system that should track mainly south of the region by Wednesday/Thursday. The best news might be that the first signs of this cold push could come to an end by next week, and allow above average high temperatures heading into next weekend!
