Tonight:  Mainly clear then late clouds, quite chilly. Lows: 20-26. Winds: Becoming Calm.

Thursday:  Mostly cloudy then becoming sunny, windy and milder. Highs: 56-62. Winds: -> S/SW 10-25 mph & gusty late.

Thursday Night:  Mainly clear then increasing clouds with a few late rain showers possible.  Breezy and mild.  Lows: 44-52.  Winds: S/SW 6-18 mph.

Friday:  Mostly cloudy and mild with some showers possible.  Highs: 58-64.

After another chilly overnight, we will finally see some spring-like air Thursday.  A warm front will move through during the morning with some clouds but then the sun will come out behind the front as a developing southwest breeze transports much milder air into our area.  Highs during the afternoon soar into the 50s to perhaps as warm as 60 south!

A period of (April) showers is possible early Friday before things dry out during the day.  Despite cloudiness, temperatures will be quite mild Friday with highs up to 60 or so.  

Easter weekend will feature a significant cool-down.  Low pressure passing overhead Friday night brings in rain and the much cooler air behind it.  The period of rain is most likely from early Friday evening into the pre-dawn Saturday with up to 1″ expected.  Any leftover showers will end during the early morning Saturday, perhaps as a few wet snow flakes across the western hills as colder air comes rushing in. 

On Easter Sunday, the data is mixed but trending towards a cloudier solution.  A consensus of data would give us a partly to mostly cloudy sky with a few rain or wet snow showers possible now.  We’ll see where the trends continue to go with this holiday forecast.  If they continue in this direction then a steadier period of rain or wet snow could be in the cards!
