Day Planner_1555795729374.JPG.jpg

After a soggy Saturday, many area rivers and waterways are full if not overflowing. This set-up has lead to many Flood Warnings, read here for the latest on specific rivers. For a bit of good news, the bulk of the heavy rain has come to an end. Rivers will still be slow to respond to the lack of new rainfall, rivers will still run high through Sunday night and early Monday. This has led to many road closings across the region, for those details you can find more here. With the possibility for some fog overnight, please take it slow on the roads. If you encounter a flooded roadway, always assume the situation is unsafe. “Turn around don’t drown.”

Wrapping up the rest of Saturday night we are still expecting a few more hit or miss rain showers, otherwise, it’s partly cloudy with areas of fog. Tonight’s temperatures will fall to the middle and upper 40s. Easter Sunday will start off with a bit of sun & clouds, with more clouds into the afternoon hours. It will be rather warm, afternoon temperatures will reach the low and middle 60s, with a few sprinkled in upper 60s. 

Starting off next week we will be between two systems. Tuesday a coastal low-pressure system looks to bring scattered rain starting to the south and east, during the early afternoon. With scattered rain across the region into Wednesday. Temperatures will slowly decline as well, highs to kick off the week are in the middle 60s. Come Friday, highs will be in the low and middle 50s.

Be safe & have a great Easter!
