Today is a good day to stay inside and catch up on your tv watching or book reading. These clouds and showers will persist through the day, increasing in coverage and intensity as we get into the overnight hours. By Sunday, we’ll just be looking at some isolated to scattered showers, but we may also see a peak of sun from time to time. Isolated to scattered showers return Sunday night and Monday, as a strong warm front crosses the plateau. If this morning’s data continues on the track its now on, I may have to remove that cloud on Tuesday and replace it with partly cloudy skies. I may also have to raise the high on Tuesday a good ten degrees. Tuesday looks like the best day of the week, weatherwise. That warm air brings with it a return of more substantial moisture for Tuesday night and Wednesday. Showers will continue on Thursday. By the time all is said and done, we could be looking at 2-4 inches of total rainfall from Tuesday night to Thursday. There are indications that rainfall amounts could be an inch or two higher than that, so stay tuned.
The good news is that the models are showing drier air coming in here for Friday. The even better news? That drier air may just stick around for the weekend! So, we might just have a really nice Easter weekend. Fingers crossed, right?
It is also worth noting that even though the pattern is changing toward a milder, wetter pattern, there are still no indications that we’ll be dealing with any severe t-storms. Flooding, however, may be a concern beginning Tuesday night and extending through Thursday morning.
You all have a great weekend and stay dry! And keep your fingers crossed for a pretty Easter weekend!
