PM Update: April showers on tap tomorrow
Sunshine returns for Thursday and Friday
Despite a little more in the way of clouds than expected, today turned out pretty typical for this time in April, at least as far as temperatures go. Highs rising to upper 60s and near 70 felt quite delightful after recent cool days. Our weather roller coaster continues though and today's conditions are already on the way out. In fact, tomorrow should be cool and somewhat rainy before sun returns with another rise in temperatures on Thursday.
Through Tonight: We start the evening with variable clouds and temperatures falling through the 60s before trending fully cloudy overnight. An area of rain moves toward the region from the southwest after midnight, and some showers are possible heading into sunrise. Lows settle into the upper 40s and low 50s.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Weak low pressure passing to our south leads to a cloudy, cool and somewhat rainy day. Rain should be moving into the area by the morning commute and looks to last into the evening. Highs probably won't get much above 60 and much of the day could feature temperatures in the 50s as rain falls. There is potential for a general .25-.50" of rain with a chance for more, especially over south and east sections of the area.
No storms? The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has announced 2010 is off to the slowest-ever start for severe weather in the United States. Rich Thompson, a forecaster at SPC, notes "It looks like we've gone the deepest into a year without our first moderate or high risk." The previous latest-ever for such was March 21, 2005 (a year which also started slow but caught up as the hurricane season progressed).
