No significant threats in sight.
Clouds and scattered to isolated showers should be with us most of the day, decreasing in coverage and intensity as we move toward the evening hours. Clouds should decrease overnight.
That leads us to a wonderful Easter Sunday. We should be very thankful for that.
That good weather continues into the first part of our workweek, before our next storm system moves in mid-week.
You can tell the temperature by counting the clicks a cricket makes in 15 seconds and adding 37.

One year ago today
Winds were calm and the afternoon hit 65 degrees. This came after a frosty morning low of 32 degrees. Not too bad of a day!
Sky viewing conditions tonight: POOR
Moon phase: Waning Gibbous, 99% illumination
What to look for in the night sky tonight
Mostly cloudy skies will likely block the view. After midnight, skies should clear. The Lynid meteor shower is best after midnight, but you’ll be battling the light of a nearly Full moon.
You all have a wonderful Easter weekend!
