Douglass Harlow's Outlook from the Storm Team Weather Center

More Clouds Today But No Rain...And a Great Weekend Ahead Folks Spring Breaking in western Florida aren't happy today as a storm system in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico is bringing a lot of rain to the Panhandle. A thick canopy of high clouds has spread north of that system into our neck of the woods, and we're waking up overcast for the first time a while. That cloud deck helped keep temperatures up, though, with hilltops already around 50 degrees at sunrise and valley spots near 40. A weak cold front approaching from the west has helped draw those clouds north ahead of it...but it won't merge with that storm. With these two systems remaining separate the rain from that southern low pressure system will stay to our south today and tonight, leaving us with another decent day. By the afternoon I think clouds will thin for some more sun and temperatures will warm to a high of 70...just about the same as yesterday. Rain from that storm will move up through the Carolinas but stay well away from our area.

Some rain may slide into western Virginia overnight with that system but high pressure to our north will block it and keep it suppressed to our south. We'll fall to around 45 degrees. Clouds Saturday morning will quickly give way to lots of sunshine and we'll warm to a high of 71 degrees....a great start to the Easter Weekend. The only downside is that winds will pick up and given how dry it is our brush fire risk will increase.

Easter Sunday looks just as nice if not better...with dry air holding on strong. We'll start the day in the 40s for Sunrise Services and warm to a high of 76 degrees in the afternoon...pretty much a perfect day. The nice weather won't end to start next week either, with Monday remaining dry and warm at 80 degrees ahead of an approaching front. That front will finally bring a few showers in here Tuesday, followed by a cooldown mid-week. We may fall into the 30s again for a couple of nights Wednesday and Thursday, with a high of 62 Wednesday and then a warmup back into the 70s Thursday.
