The Week Ahead: The Easter Edition

Good evening, Foothills Weather Nation! We hope everyone has been holding up alright with yesterday's and today's storms. As we are coming to a close on today we will start to look at what we have in the week ahead Our forecast will be written in two chunks as there are two main dominating weather events.

Short Term Forecast (Monday-Thursday day)

A strong ridge and center of high pressure is the dominating weather event for this period of the forecast. This section will be more benign with mostly clear skies and mild winds that will swing from the northwest to the southwest from Monday on through Wednesday. Regard7ing temperatures, Monday will be about 10 degrees cooler than Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as Monday will have a high in the low 60's and the later days will be in the mid 70's for the daily highs and the 40's then 50's respectively for the overnight lows. Overall the bulk of our work week looks smooth and with pretty minimal weather active day.

Long Term Forecast (Thursday night - Easter Sunday)

Starting on Thursday night our high pressure system will move offshore as a cold front moves in. This will bring in some precipitation probabilities starting at around 30 percent. As with most cold fronts we have our weather events tending to precede the front itself which is why we won't see the temperatures be impacted until Saturday evening, but we will get rain and thunderstorms for all of Friday. Saturday we see the cloud coverage start to decrease and with it the temperature will take a bit of a drop as the daily high will stop in the upper 60's and the nightly lows in the mid 40's. Easter Sunday we are expecting to be mild with temperatures in the upper 60's, mostly sunny, and little to no precipitation probability.

Thank you very much for reading! I hope you have a nice week.
