Today's Weather: A Slight, If Chilly, Improvement
The high Monday was 42 degrees, making it the coldest April 27 since the late 1800s. The storm that brought the rain and chilly weather has now moved into eastern Canada, but the clouds are going to linger for much of the day Tuesday. There could be some breaks of sunshine over central and western areas, but you should plan on a cloudy day.
The skies will clear will clear Tuesday night. I'm looking for temperatures to fall between into the 30s with the coolest air over the interior valleys, where a touch of frost is likely.
Wednesday features a blend of clouds and sunshine. We'll call it a break in the action. Readings will still be chillier than they should be this time of the year, but with the sunshine it'll feel quite nice.
We will see some showers on Thursday, and then I think we'll see a break in the rainfall for the afternoon. But another area of showers moves in for Friday.
This next area of rain will be accompanied by milder temperatures, especially on Friday when it will get near 60. This is at least more typical for the first couple of days in May.
Saturday morning remains a bit of a question mark. We could see some showers and clouds to start the day, but the trend will be for better weather. It looks mild on Sunday, with readings getting in the 60s and nearing 70.
