Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

The tug-of-war between warm and cold air continues this week. That means we can expect more wild temperature swings.

After a dreary, cool Easter Sunday with high temperatures only in the 50s, the skies cleared and we warmed up nicely on Monday. Most of us made it well into the 70s.

But a series of cold fronts will bring us much cooler weather over the next few days.

Despite plenty of sunshine it will be 10 to 15° cooler on Tuesday.

Another cold front will knock our high temperatures down into the upper 50s on Wednesday.

But a shift in the wind will push in warmer air from down south to end the work week. Expect high temperatures on Thursday and Friday in the mid-to-upper 70s.

But an approaching cold front will bring us a chance for showers and thunderstorms on Friday.

Behind that cold front we will be back in the 60s for the weekend, and the 50s by next Monday
