Drier Trend for Easter Weekend

Thursday, April 16th, 2014

Spotty drizzle and a few showers will continue off and on though the Friday pre-dawn, then a cold front limps in early Friday.  Behind that front, skies will clear and rain chances will end, meaning it now looks like from sunrise Friday through the day Saturday we'll be dry.

A slow-moving and weak system looks like it will arrive by late Sunday into Monday, so I'm trending rain chances down for Easter and also pushing back the timing to Sunday afternoon at the earliest - possibly even Sunday evening.

Though this is good news for your outdoor Easter plans, it's bad news for the drought.  The hopes of much-needed rain are fading a bit as rain totals through Monday could be 1/10" or less for most with some areas getting up to 1/4".  Meanwhile, we're running a 4"+ deficit for rain since the start of the year.

Next week it looks like we'll have a streak of spring warmth with highs in the mid to upper 80s.


Thursday Night: 58 Clouds and scattered showers (20% chance).  Winds: E to NE 5 Cold front approaches late Thursday/early Friday
Good Friday: 79 Any showers end before sunrise.  Clouds give way to sunny skies.  Winds: NE 5
Easter Saturday: 81 Partly cloudy and warmer. *Morning Low: 59
Easter Sunday
: 80  Mostly cloudy a 30% chance of PM showers and storms.  *Morning Low for Sunrise Services: 62
Monday: 85  Morning clouds, 20% chance of AM showers, PM clearing.  *Morning Low: 64
Tuesday: 86  Partly cloudy.  *Morning Low: 65

Take Care!
