Tracking a few showers on Easter….As we move through our Easter Sunday, have your umbrella handy. We are tracking an area of low pressure that will move over the area from the south. Sunday will certainly not be a complete washout. However, scattered rain will be around from time to time. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies and some areas of patchy drizzle. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A cold front sweeps through on Monday, giving way to more scattered showers and possibly a few isolated thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Once the front pushes offshore, the sun will return by Tuesday and Wednesday.  High temperatures will cool into the lower and mid 60s. More rain moves in late in the work week.

Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Rain (50%). Low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Easter: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Rain (40%). Cool. High temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds: E/NE 5-10 mph.
