TUESDAY: With a frontal boundary draped over the state; expect another split in temperatures from the cooler east to the warmer west. Expect mostly to variably to cloudy skies with highs ranging from the lower to middle 70s east; to the middle 70s to near 80° west. Winds will get aggressive – between 15 – 25 mph from the east / southeast. Clouds hold firm overnight as we only fall into the 60s.
MID-WEEK STORMS: A sluggish storm system will make progress to the east through Wednesday and Thursday – spreading rain and storms across the region. There is the possibility of a few strong storms amid a flooding threat as the system moves in through Wednesday and Thursday. For Wednesday – ahead of the storms, we'll manage to run temperatures up into the 80s; as the rain moves in, lower 70s will be the call for Thursday. Rainfall amounts could end up totaling 2-4" regionwide and could cause flooding concerns.
EASTER WEEKEND: Things turn a bit more tranquil through the latter half of the week. Highs will be in the 70s with mostly to partly sunny skies heading into Easter weekend. As of now, we'll likely stay dry for sunrise services as well.
