Heavy rain this week, followed by a nice Easter Weekend

SUMMARY

It’s not going to be a total washout of a week, but it’s going to be pretty darn damp. The big washout should hold off until Wednesday night and Thursday, when at least a couple of inches of rain may fall.

For today, though, just expect a lot of clouds to be hanging around. This morning fog should move out by mid-morning or so. I can’t rule out a stray shower or sprinkle today, but we shouldn’t see much precip today. Tonight, a warm front lifts back over us and that could kick off some showers. Those shrs may stick with us through Monday, along with lots of clouds. By Tuesday, the warm front lifts farther to our north, but I’m not sure we’ll see much sun. I think we’ll see some peaks of it, but I’m not sure it’ll be enough to get us much above 60 for a high. I’ll update that tomorrow. Tuesday is our best chance of sun for the week, so we hope we can get a peak or two at least.

Then, the rain develops in earnest across our area. We’re looking at about a couple inches of rain from Wednesday to Friday, maybe more. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have to raise those rainfall totals by an inch or two.

The good news is that Easter weekend continues to look nice! It might be a bit chilly, but we should see lots of sunshine. I know a lot of you attend sunrise services on Easter, and it’s always nice to have an actual sun rising for those! ha

Last night was interesting here on the plateau. A warm front lifted over us and we had some heavy rainfall and even a storm here in the north end of the county. Then, the temp rose to 57 on my home weather station by 6:00 p.m., after we had been in the 40s all day. But, then the cold front came through and we were back down to 42 by 9:00 p.m. Oh well, it was a nice warm up while it lasted! (ha) That same warm front will lift over us again tonight, but this time it will stay north of us until Friday.

Below is a map of the weather threats facing our country this week. Notice that we’re just inside the heavy rain threat, but far from the severe weather threats in Oklahoma and Texas.

And this is the total rainfall expected over the next seven days. A lot of us are going to be getting some soaking spring rains!
