No Fooling

April began on a pleasant note under clear skies--no jokes from the weather today. Clouds increase tonight leading to a mostly cloudy Thursday with slightly cooler temperatures. I cannot completely rule out a stray light shower or sprinkles Thursday afternoon and Thursday night as a warm front moves across the region to the northeast. The next cold front arrives Friday night. Friday will be partly to mostly cloudy with showers and thundershowers late-day and at night.

Looking ahead to Easter Weekend (and "bonus" skiing at App Ski Mtn to benefit the New River Middle Fork Greenway). Colder air arrives late Friday night. Saturday will be much cooler with early flurries possible. Easter Sunday is milder after a frosty sunrise.

Forecast Discussion

Tonight, a southeasterly flow develops around high pressure centered to our northeast. Clouds increase overnight and mostly cloudy skies continue through Thursday. Thursday evening, last night's front moves back to the northeast as a warm front. Thursday will be a couple degrees cooler. I cannot completely rule out a stray shower Thursday afternoon and Thursday night as the front moves northeast.

The next cold front moves through from the west Friday night. A stray, light shower is not impossible during the day Friday; however, the "real" rain waits until late Friday afternoon and Friday night. A thundershower is possible as just ahead of the front. Temperatures Friday will be warmer but fall rapidly late Friday night behind the front.

Saturday will be much cooler and blustery. Even an early morning snow flurry is possible. Winds calm Saturday night and Easter Sunrise will be frosty. Temperatures moderate Sunday afternoon.

Early next week a front will slide south from the Great Lakes and Northeast; however, it will stall to our north then head back to the north. We'll be in an increasingly moist southerly flow. Skies will be come mostly cloudy Monday. We have the slight chance of a stray light showers Monday, then better chances of showers Monday night into Tuesday.
