We’re finally getting a decent Saturday, which bodes quite well for all the Easter egg hunts scheduled for today. Once this morning’s heavy frost melts off, we’ll be looking for partly to mostly sunny skies for our Saturday. Clouds will increase again this evening, as our next system moves in on us. This system will bring more rain showers overnight and clouds and a shower for our Easter Sunday. Temps will remain mild, so we don’t have any more cold mornings to worry about for a few days. I’m optimistically calling for a peak or two of sun for our Easter. Fingers crossed we get at least a visit from the sun sometime during the day!
Yet another storm system moves in Sunday night and Monday, bringing more rain chances. This is all ahead of a strong cold front that will move through Tuesday night. Some of those storms could be strong, so I’ll be keeping an eye on that. The greatest threat of severe weather from this system will be over eastern Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana during the day Tuesday.
Temps drop off behind that front and that will set the stage for a cool, wet pattern that will stick with us a while. Yet another big storm system may threaten us for next weekend, but we’ll worry about that a bit later on.
On this date in 1963, we set our all-time record high for the month of March here in Crossville when he hit 81 degrees. We won’t be anywhere near that today, but it’s kinda nice to know we’re in the time of year when such warm temps are possible. ha
You all have a great Easter weekend!
