Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

After a warm and windy work week, it looks like the Easter weekend will be cooler and calmer.

The cold front that brought us scattered showers on Friday will flip our winds to the northeast, pushing in much cooler air.

That front will also linger to our south during the weekend, bringing us clouds from time to time and even a stray shower on Easter Sunday.

But it looks like the bulk of the rain will hold off until Sunday night as an area of low pressure rolls up the coast. That low will bring us scattered showers and possibly some thunderstorms into Monday.

Another cold front will sweep that storm system away and knock our temperatures back down into the 50s and 60s on Tuesday.

By this time next week we will warm back to near 70° again
