Forecast: Chilly Easter Sunday Sunshine

By Jason Samenow

It's cold for late March, but on the bright side, at least there's no soaking rain or awful wind in the forecast. Even if temperatures are colder than average, we'll have a lot of sunshine -- at least today. Then, if we can get through one more brisk day tomorrow (and a snow flurry?), warmer weather will gradually return by the middle of the coming week.

TODAY

Mostly sunny. Near 50. Temperatures will be similar to yesterday but there will be no rain or sleet and a whole lot of sunshine. Still, the airmass overhead is a cold one for this time of year, so getting above 50 will be a struggle.

Overnight, clouds increase with snow flurries possible after midnight. Lows will range from the near 30 in the colder suburbs to the mid 30s downtown.

Keep reading for the forecast for early next week...

MONDAY

Variably cloudy, slight chance of showers/flurries. Upper 40s. A weak upper level weather disturbance will ripple through the region. It may produce some snow flurries or light rain showers, but coverage will be scattered and amounts light. Temperature will remain cold, with high temperatures likely holding in the 40s.

Clouds decrease at night, with lows near freezing in the suburbs and in the mid to upper 30s downtown.

A LOOK AHEAD

A warming trend starts Tuesday with highs climbing back into the mid 50s and by Wednesday we near 60. Both days will likely be dry and mainly sunny. Overnight lows will generally be near 40.
