Everything you need to know about the Easter Weekend storms

Aside from a few passing clouds tonight, we’ll be quiet to go along with breezy southerly winds at 10 to 20 mph. However, those breezy winds help keep us mild overnight with temperatures only expected to get as low as the low 60s.

A few more clouds are expected by tomorrow morning, which could mix in with some spotty showers, as well. Otherwise, most of us will stay dry, to go along with breezy conditions. Southerly winds are expected to be sustained at 15 to 20 mph, but gusts could exceed 25 mph at times. That southerly flow will warm us up once again into the 70s for tomorrow. We’re also tracking at least a few pockets of sunshine for tomorrow, but any sunshine we do see could help fuel some stronger storms later on as our next cold front approaches.

Our northwestern areas still look to be the area of initial shower and storm development. We could see a few showers start to pop up as early as 4 or 5 o’clock. Storm chances will move from west to the east and southeast during the evening hours. However, we are tracking isolated thunderstorms to develop more into a line of showers and storms as it progresses to the east, particularly to the east of highway 24 between 10 pm and midnight. As that line progresses, the threat of damaging winds becomes slightly higher for our eastern areas. Otherwise, main threats for tomorrow look to be possibly large hail and pockets of heavy rainfall.

That chance of severe weather, and even rain in general, greatly diminishes as we turn the clock into Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday will be the coolest day of the weekend as we’re expecting highs to only hover near that 70 degree mark. A mix of sun and clouds during the day on Sunday, will turn into another chance of scattered showers and storms by the evening. However, we are not anticipating any severe weather for Easter night.

Beyond Easter weekend, more chances of showers and storms are apparent for the next several days. Even so, temperatures stay mild in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
