Another 50/50 weekend

Main threats

No significant threats in sight.

Summary

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.

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!
