Good Friday afternoon! It has turned out chilly today, with highs only reaching the upper 40s to near 50. A batch of high clouds and a breezy west wind has made conditions feel quite chilly this afternoon and evening. Expect skies to become partly cloudy overnight, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s to near 30. A light west wind will continue overnight.
The trough will remain over the central and eastern US through the weekend, which will feature chilly daytime temperatures and cold overnight lows. Highs will reach the low 50s on Saturday and Sunday, with lows dipping into the lower 30s. I don’t expect any rain through the weekend, but skies will remain partly cloudy on Saturday, becoming mostly cloudy on Sunday. An upper air disturbance will move around the base of the trough on Sunday, which will bring the enhancement of clouds. With little to no moisture in the lowest 10,000 feet, I don’t expect any risk of rain on Sunday as the disturbance moves across the area.
The trough will begin its northeastward retreat on Monday and Tuesday. Highs will remain in the lower 50s on Monday, but low to mid 60s are likely on Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows will modify into the 40s at night by mid week. Next week appears mostly dry, although a stray shower is possible on Thursday.
