Sunny Skies and Warm Temperatures for Easter Weekend

By Carlo Falco
Published On: Apr 19 2014 11:05:38 AM CDT

Beautiful weather for Easter egg hunts this Weekend.

Temperatures will increase today into the low 80s once again with clear skies overhead.  That will change tomorrow, but in the warmer direction as high pressure intensifies over the NorthState.  Temperatures will push into the mid to upper 80s on Sunday and in some areas could even nibble at 90° Sunday afternoon. 

Things all change come Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  An upper level low drops in from the northwest and will bring the threat for rain showers in the middle of Kool April Nites.  Those showers will be initially mostly confined to the mountains, but Tuesday afternoon they’ll make it down into the valley in the form of scattered thunderstorms.  The main threat here is looking like some gusty winds and small hail as turning parameters don’t look very promising.  Instability will be moderate and could allow for some pretty strong updrafts making hail a very real threat especially as the car show gets under way.  Wednesday there is a threat for an isolated thunderstorm, but it is less likely than on Tuesday.

The rest of the week sees more rain showers and even is hinting at the possibility of an atmospheric river to set up late in the week.  That would be great for several things including allergies and all the dust in the air, and of course the additional water that would put a dent in our drought.  We’ll keep an eye on things and let you know.
