April 8, 2011 - Mixed Bag of Weather

We'll continue on the rollercoaster ride of spring through this weekend, with a few nice days in there, I promise!

Ok, I'll admit it! We have some dreary and "I don't want to do anything" weather for the final day of the work week. But it's better to have this on a Friday than a Monday - am I right?

Regardless, it's sleepy weather - clouds, drizzle, cooler air. Our high temperature was actually at midnight - 57 degrees - and we'll stay in the upper 40's to low 50's through much of the day. The majority of any rainfall will come as we go into Friday afternoon and evening, however we're looking at amounts close to .25".

Saturday will be a transition day, as our front once again moves through our area to the north. This will initiate a wind shift, and therefore a temperature shift for us.

We'll *really* start to notice the temperature shift as we go into Sunday, when highs return to the 80's under partly cloudy skies. With this heat and added humidity moving into the area, we can't rule out an isolated thunderstorm popping up over the mountainside.

Monday is going to be the day to watch. Temperatures will approach record levels with dewpoints in the 60's (hello summer?) along with a cold front coming through during our peak daytime heating hours. Right now, the Storm Prediction Center has not outlined any specific area because the predictability is too low at this point - it's too hard to pinpoint threat areas. However, they will have that outlined by tomorrow.

Meteorologist Aubrey Urbanowicz will keep you updated over the weekend about the severe weather possibilities and Meteorologist Josh Knight will have the latest for you on Daybreak Monday morning.
