Breezy and Cool Sunday, Frost Sunday Night? … Saturday Forecast Update — 7:50pm


A few morning sprinkles moved out, but the clouds stubbornly stuck around until late this afternoon. Tonight, some gradual clearing will continue, with winds remaining out of the northwest at 5-10 mph. It will be breezier on Sunday, and despite seeing more sunshine, temperatures will remain cool, only reaching into the mid 50’s. Sunday will be the first full day of Spring for 2016, although the season officially starts on the vernal equinox which occurs at 11:31 PM CDT.

The wind lessens Sunday night, allowing temperatures to drop into the low and mid 30’s with some patchy frost overnight. A chilly start to the day on Monday, but the sunshine and decreased winds will help us get back into the upper 50’s and lower 60’s by the afternoon hours. The sky will remain clear through Wednesday afternoon, letting us warm back into the mid 70’s by Wednesday. Morning lows will steadily warm as well with a southerly breeze bringing some moisture back into the area.

The next rain chance will arrive on Thursday as a strong low pressure system moves in with showers and a few rumbles of thunder beginning as early as Thursday morning. The best chance for thunderstorms will be Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will remain warm for Thursday, before cooling some Friday into the upper 60’s. Rain showers and thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours and into the day on Good Friday. Friday evening the rain will gradually move east allowing us to dry out for Saturday. Temperatures will not take much of a hit this time with high temperatures Saturday back in the low 70’s.
