ABC7 StormWatch with Doug Hill and Jacqui Jeras

Today's Forecast Updated Saturday at 5:28 AM

Look for morning clouds to yield to mostly sunny skies this afternoon with temperatures climbing into the mid 60s.  Easter Sunday should feature plenty of sunshine with highs again in the comfortable mid 60s.

This Afternoon:
AM Clouds, PM Mostly Sunny & Milder
Highs: 64-68
Wind: N 5-10 mph
Tonight:
Mostly Clear & Cool
Lows: 38-47
Wind: N 10-15 mph
Sunday:
Sunny & Seasonably Mild
Highs: 66-70
Wind: E 10 mph

After shivering through three days in the 50s and "you've got to be kidding" freeze warnings so late in the season, Mother Nature is getting it "eggsactly" right for this Easter weekend!  Although rain is falling to the southeast and looks rather threatening on radar, high pressure and northerly wins will triumph with mostly sunny skies expected by afternoon.  Readings in the 40s this morning under mostly cloudy skies will warm to the mid to upper 60s later today.  After a cool overnight with temperatures in the mid 40s, Easter Sunday should feature plenty of sunshine and seasonably comfortable highs again in the mid to upper 60s.

Monday should be milder still with highs in the low 70s, but an approaching cold front will likely bring rain on Tuesday.  Some thunderstorm activity is also possible as highs reach the mid 70s.  Wednesday will be windy and chilier with readings in the low 60s, but milder air returns for the latter part of the week.  Have a Happy Easter!
