Another windy day is on tap with gusts up to 50-55 mph possible as we go through the day. Highs will struggle to make it into the 50’s, and several of us will remain in the 40’s! Temperatures will try to raise the mercury Saturday with a wind turning southerly late during the day. Winds may gust up to 20 mph out of the west-northwest before switching over to a southerly wind overnight Saturday into Sunday.
Sunday looks sunny to start, but clouds will increase during the day, giving us a chance of rain late Sunday afternoon and evening. There is a slight chance of sprinkles during the morning, but precipitation will become more likely Sunday into Monday. We could potentially see an inch of rain on Monday. Temperatures will rise into the 70’s briefly before falling back below average Tuesday.
Temperatures will return into the 50’s on Tuesday as another push of cold air remains settles into the area as we head into mid-April.
