Forecast: Summer Temperatures For Sunday

This is what the weather is going to be like this Easter weekend

The week starts off quiet and mainly dry with the exception of Monday night and Tuesday morning where there could be a few showers as a disturbance in the upper atmosphere moves through.

Saturday will see more in the way of sunshine in the morning, with things set to be brighter on Easter Sunday and highs of 12C. Temperatures for Good Friday and Saturday will stay seasonable, with highs in the low 60s. So I'll call it a decent day, just far from ideal. Partly sunny, with a high near 78.

Breezy winds, out of the south 10-15 miles per hour.

A top of 24 degrees is predicted for the state but the overnight low will still be an autumnal 11 degrees.

Wednesday night: A chance of showers.

Sunday morning's sunrise is at 6:50 a.m., for those of you who need to schedule Easter morning sunrise services.

As a cold front approaches late in the day, a few showers and thunderstorms will develop. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 49.

The high temperatures forecast for Saturday evening will be mild. South wind 11 to 18 miles per hour with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour.

Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 41.

The beginning of the weekend will likely include more daytime highs pushing the 80 degree mark. Despite the small chance, if it does reach the WIBW viewing area don't be surprise if a stronger storm is accompanied by small hail or brief heavy rain. The balance of the day will be dry, cloudy and cooler highs in the upper 40s. A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before midnight. Partly sunny, with a high near 75.

"This weekend is a different kettle of fish with winds coming in from the north as it is a lot cooler and a lot colder".

Weather on Saturday will be dominated by a deep area of low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia, and a large area of high pressure over the Atlantic to the south-west of the UK.
